Sad news, indeed. A miners life is not an easy one, and the safety issue just makes it worse.
I won't say I wouldn't do it, but I wouldn't want to do it.
Thoughts and prayers to the miners and the families.

I just saw that.

I know some members are from WV. I am from mining country myself and my maternal grandfather died in a mine accident.

Hondo, in spite of our differences I pray that your friends and family weren't involved and I extend my prayers to the families of those who were victims.
