The Transportation Commission wants us to name the new ferry? How about just numbering it. I think we have embarrassed the coastal Native Americans enough by naming our overly priced, listing, fuel guzzlers, that are unable to load certain types of cars on their upper decks. WSDOT insulted Chief Chetzemoka by naming one of its new clunkers his beautiful name. The original MV Chetzemoka from the Mukilteo-Clinton run is resting peacefully on the bottom off of the Washington coast where it sank after being retired. RIP Chetzemoka. You can name the new one No. 13.
