Sacramento’s Walking Dead Return This Saturday
by Chris Narloch
If you see folks stumbling around downtown this weekend in bloody makeup and ripped up clothes, don’t be alarmed, dear readers. It’s all part of The Sacramento Zombie Walk, which is billed as “the oldest annual zombie walk in the world.”
I haven’t fact-checked that statement with the Guinness Book of World Records folks, but I’ll take the word of the organizers, who have built the event into a really big undead deal.

US Navy To Name Ship After LGBT Rights Icon, Harvey Milk
WASHINGTON, July 28, 2016 --
Today, the American Military Partner Association (AMPA), the nation's largest organization of lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) military families, praised the news that the U.S. Navy plans to name a ship after the LGBT rights icon and former Naval officer, Harvey Milk. According to a congressional notification signed by Secretary of the Navy Ray Mabus that was obtained by USNI News, the Navy will name a planned Military Sealift Command fleet oiler USNS Harvey Milk (T-AO-206).
“Harvey Milk is an American hero and an icon for LGBT equality, and it's phenomenal that the U.S. Navy is going to honor his legacy by naming a ship after him," said AMPA President Ashley Broadway-Mack. "Harvey Milk's incredible leadership in the face of adversity continues to inspire all of us in our ongoing fight for full LGBT equality. By breaking down barriers and fighting for the dignity and worth of all Americans, he left behind an example for all of us in his service to our nation, both in and out of uniform."
