    I watched the first five minutes and it all sounds so familiar. When I visited my parents there as recently as 2008 (they've since moved), it was so hard to sleep with the noise of the mountaintop removal equipment competing with the wind and cicadas. They run 24/7.

    I'll get more into that in a future diary. Putting The Last Mountain at the top of my watch list...
