San Francisco supervisors are taking up a plan to name a terminal at SF International Airport for the late Supervisor Harvey Milk.  Supervisor Hillary Ronen will introduce legislation today to name Terminal One for Milk, who was one of the nation’s first openly gay elected officials.  Ronen says putting Milk’s name on a terminal at SFO is an appropriate way to tell people who are shunned elsewhere that they’re welcome to be who they are in San Francisco.  Milk and Mayor George Moscone were murdered in their City Hall offices by former Supervisor Dan White in 1978.
