Why is a stage & TV set up for a circus in West Virginia? Maybe I have grown cynical, but the news is showing a "ceremony" for the dead miners? Speeches will be had .. I believe I'm a coal miners grandson, but no suited politicos showed up for his funeral, correographed (sp?) with prop miners' hats? Called in order? The Governor & other polls flocking to get some tube time off the bodies of those who died? Just to me, totally offensive pandering.
Not that it is new, now see that a walking tour is being set up at Kent State? Here's where the students died ..
Spend money on what? I'm sure that the energy used in that shameful display in West Virginia came from coal dug by the miners or their brothers, not by any of the talking heads. Or do these things create jobs for 15 to 20 minutes?
Real hats off to those who work the mines, not those who work the miners when there's a problem, then disappear until the next time the roof falls
