Cesar Chavez Ship Draws Objection

In this March 11, 1968, AP file photo, Cesar Chavez (with U.S. Sen. Robert F. Kennedy) eats a piece of bread to end his 25-day fast at Delano, Calif. About 4,000 farm workers joined him in a symbolic bread-breaking ceremony marking the end of their leader's fasting for the principle of non-violence. Now, a California Republican congressman is objecting to Navy plans to name a cargo shape after the famed farm labor leader. Story here.  (AP Photo/Fresno Bee, Richard Darby)

Question: Do you object to the Navy naming a cargo ship after farm labor leader Cesar Chavez?
