    issue with Massey is an on-going parade of bullshit from more than one quarter. The companies pretend to give a damn about the miners. Government officials at all levels make very stern demands and call for a commission to look into the matter. Sometimes they even make new rules. Unions scream and kick and try like hell to keep the story alive. End result. Nothing changes

    It was found that the rules made after the last large disaster wouldn't have helped those killed this time, at all. Would not have saved their lives.

    Nothing will change until there is a sea change in this world. Doesn't appear likely at this moment.
