I have been working on the cover page and realized that I'd given no attention at all to the men who lost their lives. They were good men just going to work that day. It's all so similar to the Upper Big Branch coal mine disaster in West Virginia ... that was on April 5th .... just 2 weeks before this. Twenty Nine men lost their lives that day. In both cases safety was at issue. Lack of safety and overt greed.
Where is our modern day Charles Dickens?
"Charity begins at home,
and justice begins next door."
"I have known a vast quantity of nonsense talked about bad men not looking you in the face.
Don't trust that conventional idea.
Dishonesty will stare honesty out of countenance any day in the week,
if there is anything to be got by it."
"The civility which money will purchase,
is rarely extended to those who have none."
