HI Superferry: Great Letter to the Editor, Maui News today

Here was a brief, great letter to the editor of the Maui News today, 2/15/08:

"Washington’s fleet of ferries could use Hawaii’s ship"
POSTED: February 15, 2008

Here on Puget Sound we have a sinking fleet of ferries, old and needing replacing.

What an excellent opportunity for solving your Superferry “problem” — sell it to Washington State. And, we promise not to injure any whales.
