According to Moonalice legend, members of the tribe should judge each other on the quality of their character. We in the tribe are open minded about all personal matters, so long as they do not impinge on others. We bring this up because today is Harvey Milk Day here in San Francisco. We honor Harvey Milk and everything he stood for. You don’t have to be LGBT to believe in Harvey Milk and you don’t have to consume hemp products to be a member of the Moonalice tribe. However, if you are LGBT and you do like hemp products, we are particularly glad you are here tonight.
According to Moonalice legend, today is the 203rd anniversary of the first time a sitting US Vice President was indicted for treason. Our first reaction was that the accused must have been Dick Cheney during his first term as Vice President, but we were wrong. It turns out to have been Aaron Burr, who had already won at Fort Ticonderoga, lost a leg at Saratoga, and killed Alexander Hamilton in a duel. Only then did he get impeached for treason. Talk about inconsistent.
