"People are going to want to know how explosions can be prevented in coal mines," said Jim White, a political science professor at Concord University in Athens. "The debate will revolve around what the state and federal government need to do to better regulate the mines."

"I am truly sorry to hear about the outcome, but it was probably to be expected. I just think that now the cover-up will begin. Those in charge and the politicians will come up with some sort of cause to blame the tragedy on. They may even blame the miners some way. For a few weeks or months politicians will show up on TV and talk about how terrible it was and pontificate on remedies. They may even pass a law or two. After a few months, everyone will move on to something else and all will be fine till another tragedy. All that will be proven is politicians lie* and the American public has a short memory."

"Meanwhile, President Barack Obama is awaiting a report on the mine, which has recorded a long list of safety violations, and Congress is planning hearings.

'All Americans deserve to work in a place that is safe, and we must take whatever steps are necessary to ensure that all our miners are as safe as possible so that a disaster like this doesn't happen again,' Obama said.

Federal Mine Safety and Health Administration spokeswoman Amy Louviere said officials would arrive Monday to begin investigating the disaster."
