My prayers to this mans family, oil field and mining work is a very dangerous job. 29 men lost their lives in the BP disaster couple of weeks ago and more died in the Massey coal mine. Both companies have poor safety records and have had big fines reduced to mere pennies because this industry buys it way out of any investigations of their dead employees due to the disregard of the safety of its workers.

My prayers, too. Life is dangerous, and to determine where it is to end is God's choice. I'd rather be a man of courage who lived and did something, than a nagging nanny, who, like the democrats, tries to control and play god.
