    to intend one's statements to be factually accurate.

    One thing I wonder about with respect to coal country (having no experience of it): while coal has been a traditionally dominant source of regional employment, aren't there entrepreneurial types out there looking to diversify away from coal, & talking about the need to be more economically diverse as a condition of overall economic health & opportunity?  Education & healthcare seem to lag terribly as a result of coal dependency.  Geography poses some challenges, but there's no reason that community organization couldn't, uh, coalesce (couldn't resist) around some options to improve transportation infrastructure & explore other advantages of the region, such as, oh, mountaintop wind power.
