Subject: RE: King Coal Dumping on Jean Ritchie and ALL OF US!
Maybe off topic...

On a previous coal type thread that was not long ago (I wish I could recall/find it) I.... wait... I have a thought... nope... I searched mountain top removal to no avail.

Anyway... I recall somone posting about their home county. I went to google earth and zoommed in. I was fascinated by the railways through the valleys... nay, fucking amazed!!!! The money... the men... the time... the equipment!!! Seriously. Follow these rails through the mountains on google earth from the mountain tops of Appalachia to the seaports and it's a journey worth taking. It is truly fascinating.
