Michael Jackson's message to the people of Bremerton: You Wanna Be Startin' Something? You got to be starting something."

So, Bremelog headquarters received its first piece of snail mail this week. Nice chap by the name of Jerry Scott, who believes that the new tunnel downtown (that’s why you don’t have your McDonalds. OK, one of the reasons), should be named after the man who was its “most ardent supporter and led the way to get this tunnel built.” He thinks the tunnel should be named the Bozeman Tunnel after Mayor Cary Bozeman.

And while I think a strong case can be made for Mr. Bozeman, I think Mr. Scott and other Bremerton do-gooders should consider the following options:

“Gibb’s Place,” after Bremerton son/Death Cab for Cutie frontman Ben “I Will Follow You Into the Dark (Tunnel?)” Gibbard

“P.Y.T. (Pretty Young Tunnel),” in honor of Bremerton son Quincy Jones, producer of the Michael Jackson album Thriller and its track “P.Y.T. (Pretty Young Thing)”

“L. Ron Tunnel,” after onetime Bremerton resident and Scientology founder L. Ron Hubbard.

“Mike Hale’s  Tunnel of Love,” in return for Mike Hale putting a Hale’s Ales in Tim Ryan’s new building next to the Admiral (no brewery, no deal, Mike!).

I’m just realizing that these are all after men, and this is completely sexist. Oh, wait, I got one.
