The West Virginia coal mine disaster is certainly a tragedy for the family and friends of those involved. It's a shame that twelve people had to die so far under the Earth.
This is where the story turns stupid though. The White House has promised a full investigation in to the disaster.
Why? This happened in West Virginia, how is this a Federal matter? FedGov has no business wasting tax money investigating this accident.
Yeah, sometimes I do sweat the small stuff.
