      •  what some other george (0+ / 0-)

        so helpfully referred to:

        When Moscone and Milk were murdered by Mr. Twinkie
        The Twinkie guy went on a rampage and killed Milk (b/c homophobia) and Mayor Moscone...and got off on a defense that he ate too many Twinkies and was crazy b/c sugar.

        That's the gist of it: there was more but I don't remember all the details -- this all happened somewhere around 1978.

        Anyway, not executed: assassinated is the proper term.
