Ferry System to Blame for Fire at Bremerton Mayor's Home

In the biggest small-town mystery since "Who Shot Mr. Burns," Bremerton -- a small, quiet town without the hustle, bustle, and crime of the big city; a place where residents know their neighbors, never lock their doors, and always say hello to strangers; we're talking Puget Sound's Pleasantville -- has been in shock since Saturday, when Mayor Cary Bozeman's home caught ablaze as the elected official was on his way to watch the Huskies go down in flames against Notre Dame. Two friendly neighbors extinguished the blaze (take that, Magnolia!) before it got out of hand and took down the mayor's home. Now, the entire city is relieved to know that the fire was not the handiwork of a vicious madman, but the result of a neglected, pre-game stogy, which he left on his back deck. This, obviously, is the fault of none other than theWashington State Ferries, which does not allow smoking on the boat, but is happy to let passengers inhale the filth belched from the vessel's ... um, we'll call them smoke stacks. Had the mayor been allowed to finish his cigar on board, none of this would ever have happened, and the city tranquility would not have been tampered with.
