coal river mountain

I'm going to start posting regularly now.

I suppose you could say this is the first post in what is going to be regular blog posts. I figured some folks out here in internet land may be interested in the goings on of my life, and by extension the movement to end surface mining here in West Virginia. So, yeah if anyone has any suggestions of what exactly they would like me to talk about I’m open to them.


“Coal is mean, coal is cruel, and coal kills. The American people need to find their position. You’re connected to coal whether you realize or not. Everybody’s connected to this, and everybody’s causing it, and everybody’s allowing it.”

If you haven’t seen this movie yet, then I strongly suggest you watch it. It’s definitely an eye opener. Find your position, and let’s move beyond coal.
