But you can’t blame us for thinking otherwise.
After viewing “Milk” last night, one of many discussions that followed was whether or not Anita Bryant was still living. Everyone agreed she was dead. Wishful thinking, it turns out. NOT a willful wishing that another human being was dead, but rather a fervent desire that everything the woman stood for in the 70’s was dead and buried.
In fact, hate crimes perpetrated against gays and lesbians are on the rise. So, you know, I’m hoping the increased attention “Milk” will bring to Anita Bryant results in a few more pies in her face. She deserves the humiliation.
Good to see the pie-throwing tradition lives on.
