Wonder how Joe Hill feels being the title character in a song.

Seriously, I think Becky has a valid point. siʔał didn't want them to rename Duwamps (aka "New York Alki") after him, either, which is why I prefer to call the place dzidzəlalič (or "Greater dzidzəlalič"). When I was in grade school they taught us (may be an urban legend) that he told Doc Maynard that every time his name was mentioned after his death his body would roll over in its grave, which he found an uncomforting thing to look forward to.
