Upper Big Branch Mine Tragedy, Update

USA TODAY: THE REPORT IS IN AND MASSEY IS AT FAULT

NEW YORK TIMES: THE TRUTH

WALL STREET JOURNAL: INFORMATION/REACTIONS/UPDATE ONE YEAR LATER

THE ACTUAL REPORT



Some of you already know about my interest in what happened at the Upper Big Branch mine in West Virginia in 2010.

And now there is no misunderstanding the flagrant and disgraceful safety violations that J. Davitt McAteer has listed in his report.

Massey Energy should be operating under an entirely different set of standards.

God does.

And if Massey Energy continues to deny that it's all their fault (I'm directing this at Don Blankenship and the high end of the company, not the workers) then God will remind those foolish people.

After all, what is the value of a soul next to a lump of coal?
