If this is an old article about Upper Big Branch why was it posted 2 hours ago? I'm confused. It made me think there was another explosion.

Just confused me. My husband works up there. Not at Upper Big Branch, but he's a diesel mechanic for Alpha and services all the mines. Even though he dosent work in the mines, it's still worries me.

I know....very disturbing that they do that! Would scare anyone that's been close to such situations! Has to be a mistake or just some rude idiot thinking it's funny.

I hope this is false because there is NOTHING funny about it! My whole family are coal miners and I worry 24-7! If it is a "joke" then the person who started it needs blown up!!

Oh I will never forget 3 ppl that I knew from my childhood was in there and everytime I walk to my car its a reminder of the horrid lose! Shew I still get chills, I remember being glued to the tv for days, even when the one out of the country happened I was glued and just cried when here they all died and there they all lived! This is why I cannot stand tree hugging ppl my whole family has and is coal miners that has always being the way of life here and now it's leaving because of Obama! Lets see how many tree huggers complain when theres no electric anymore and we go back 100's of yrs

And it is sick to post something like this as a joke and no I wouldn't want him blown up, good God thats called speaking out of anger! You have to have being there to understand! I don't wish harm on anyone and trust me in my life and the road I have being directed to then I actually should have a hatered for a lot of ppl! But God has my back and my life is in his hands as well as my childs, we all slip and get angery, point is though I forgave and will cont to forgive the ppl who do wrong to me, my child is a different story on some levels because I know they will all have their day to answer to the only person that has a right to judge and thats none of us! But thanks for the name calling your forgiven and I am outta here!
