Sago mine disaster

Our freind at the Skeptical Observerhas made a couple important observations. Although the news media's main take on this story at the moment is the false news of survivors, the real story is mining safety deregulation at the hands of the Bush administration. These guys have no problem trading blood for money. That is as long as it's someone else's blood. Cowardliness, greed, and incompetence have been the hallmark of this administration. This story isn't the first tragedy associated with the Bush administration, and with several years to go, it won't be the last.

Thanks for the mention Left of Center. And I would like to add that I have also observed that I think a fitting memorial to the dozen dead miners at Sago would be that the remaining workers form a union. I hope that people in this country will notice that the workers at Sago mine were not organized, and that with a union they could have demanded better protection from the MHSA.

That sir, is an excellent point.
