Thread Name: King Coal Dumping on Jean Ritchie and ALL OF US!
Subject: RE: King Coal Dumping on Jean Ritchie and ALL OF US!
Thank you for keeping this thread alive. My father was from a western PA coal mining area, but I only went back there for the first time a few years ago. I had hear about strip mining, but never seen it up close. I was appalled at what it had done to the area. More people need to hear about this.
