Dave Price Learns To Be Careful With His Words About Coal
DES MOINES, Iowa -- Emails can be annoying, but they can also be a good reminder for those of us who talk for a living. Last Sunday, Dave Price did a segment on that huge sinkhole that swallowed part of a Des Moines man's yard. That house was built on top of an old coal mine, and the sinkhole looks like it happened over the mine shaft. When he mentioned how Iowa’s coal industry has disappeared, he said that the coal had been considered toxic.
