Can you DIG it!

Can you DIG it!

By Will Roberts

I don’t doubt that big business might have been trying to cut corners to make just a little more profit. However, an underground structure where you spend all your time digging out the walls and ceilings is nothing but a daily risk.

America’s stumbling block these days seems to be corporate America (whether it lives above ground or belowground) and all of the red tape that they need to go through to even start a project-- let alone a rescue. All the lawyers involved need to get together and decide how it is done, when it is done and if it is going to be done, and most of them have never even had dirt on their own shoes, other than the times their ball has landed on the ruff at the golf course. 

Overall, the point I am trying to make is that MSHA or Murray Energy or (mine co-owner) Utah American’s are doing the best they know how to do. . . DIG.  "A plan is only a plan if you try it; otherwise it is just an idea." And at this point, I have an idea that they wish they had another plan.
