Wisdom of the market, cont.: The market thinks it’s just fine to kill coal miners

So the company where 29 miners died in April is suing the federal government, which doesn’t want it to use a particular type of scrubber because the scrubber is inadequate.

That takes some gall. But then, this is Massey Energy, the company run by Don Blankenship, who called mining safety rules “as silly as global warming.” They’ve got almost as much gall as they’ve got coal.

Hey, Don: You ain’t Goldman Sachs. You killed 29 men, and you’re going to go to prison for it. Scrub that, you son of a bitch — but I think you’ll find, as Lady Macbeth did, that the blood doesn’t wash out.

He’s poisoning more than just streams, killing more than just miners.
