    If we had laws in place (and enforced) that really protected workers, news of this disaster would have sparked panic selling in Massey stock.

    To really protect workers, the laws would have to be such that negligence leading to death resulted in fines so large that the company's ability to continue operations would be in question. Which, in turn, would mean that any auditor worth their salt (an entirely different topic) would have to look into and rate a coal company's safety practices.

    In theory, there is no difference between theory and practice; but in practice, there always is a difference. - Yogi Berra
