I saw the moon come up and it was absolutely huge. The ferry trip to the city and back was fantastic. The Slanted Door deserves its rave reviews. The food was incredible and we all enjoyed a marvelous time.
We went to see the movie Milk tonight. If you haven't seen it, definitely plan to do so. It may be in my top ten movies and certainly Sean Penn as Harvey Milk is astonishing. He deserves the best actor Academy Award. I kept thinking if they could have brought it out a few months sooner, prop. 8 might have had a different result.
We lived here at the time so there were no surprises for us, but I was surprised at how many people in the audience gasped when they saw how Dan White was sentenced. I assumed that everyone in the audience knew the story, especially since this is the Bay area. I knew the ending, obviously, and was still stunned. I remember that day so well, the shock and the movie conveys it well. It is beautifully done, and Harvey Milk's spirit is beautifully and artfully shown. Again, it is, in my opinion, a must-see.
