It's Tuesday, May 22, Sherlock Holmes Day. Happy birthday to activist Harvey Milk (1930-1978), a San Francisco supervisor who was shot to death by his former colleague Dan White (who blamed it on his diet of Twinkies). Today in 1843, a wagon train with more than 1,000 settlers, their cattle and belongings left Independence, Missouri, for Oregon, on a journey known as the 'Great Emigration.' Expect sunshine with a high in the low 80s. Honor those who came across the Oregon Trail today:
