Battle in Seattle. A script for the made-for-TV movie about a pack of ravenous ferry riders in search of justice is being shopped around as we Tweet.

For those of you ferry riders who don’t have to work on Wednesday, Feb. 18, there’s a rally just for you in Olympia on the steps of the legislature.

For those of you working and riding the ferry on Wednesday, Feb. 18, no need to feel left out, you can still sign the petition for yourself and anyone you think would want to sign but isn’t able, and show your (and their) support for legislative action to fully fund the ferry system and not allow WSF to revert to Plan B, and cut the Bremerton run back to a single ferry. I’ve got much to say about Plan B, but I don’t feel like talking about it right now. If any of you want to chime in, please be my guest. But the misses has asked me to take a couple days a week off from discussion the situation.

OK, but, about putting up a resistance to losing a boat, I’ve got an idea for those of us who can’t make it to Olympia on the 18th ….

First of all, I’m not completely opposed to the idea of only one auto ferry servicing Bremerton. In reality, we don’t need two, we need more frequent, reliable runs with passenger-only ferries. But, I know some of you aren’t very confident that enough, if any, of said boats will materialize. In that case, the Bainbridge run will be deluged with Bremertonians at night, during off hours, and even during some commuter runs. SO, the best way to get another community on board here is to start riding the Bainbridge run, and do it in force. If a few hundred passenger and a hundred extra cars stormed the 5:30 p.m. Bainbridge run, they’d get the message that we’re all in this together.

Or, at least we should be.
