Solidarity (17)

Coal Miner Pul-i-Khumri, Afghanistan (2002)

I have been remiss about posting images in this series. It seems as though all hope is lost of finding the miners at Crandall canyon alive. The issue now seems only to be whether or not the government and the mining company will leave the bodies of the six men buried in the mine.

The issue, at least to me, is if the mine owner and the person in charge of mine safety (a Bush appointee), both of whom have dedicated their lives to negating and avoiding the safety constraints and regulations that allowed this to occur, will get away with this travesty. Unfortunately, that's not a question...

Stan,

Your guess seems just about right to me. I figure that the mine operator will get a pass and the Feds will sign it for him.
