The horrendous heat wave Sacramento has been having makes movie going even more of a pleasure.
The air-conditioned sanctuary of your local theater sounds like a plan this weekend, and here are some suggestions for what to see and what to flee on the big screen.
Hillary Clinton's Remarks to the Democratic National Convention Accepting Her Nomination
At the Democratic Convention in Philadelphia on Thursday, Hillary Clinton accepted her party's nomination. She told the audience that, despite the challenges of a changing world, we must not resort to Donald Trump's dangerous proposals. Clinton also paid tribute to the Americans who have inspired her lifetime in public service and who continue to sustain her belief that we are stronger together: her mother Dorothy; the survivors and first responders on 9/11 and our men and women in uniform.
"We have the most dynamic and diverse people in the world. We have the most tolerant and generous young people we've ever had. We have the most powerful military. The most innovative entrepreneurs.The most enduring values. Freedom and equality, justice and opportunity," Clinton said.
Clinton's remarks, as transcribed, are below:
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."

We would like to thank everyone that took a few moments to weigh in and tell us some of your favorite spot and things in Sacramento. No, we won’t be giving out 24 karat gold plaques or anything, but we thought it would be fun to resurrect it and see what our readers thought, and liked.
