Adding Insult to Injury

Last month, Bill Raney, president of the West Virginia Coal Association, penned a power editorial, “Scraps from the Table: Obama’s Plan an Insult to West Virginia’s Coal Mining Families.” Coal Age readers can find it at www.wvcoal.com. Raney has been a fierce advocate for coal and the Mountain State for many years. In the piece, he admonished the Charleston Gazette, which has long taken an anti-coal stance, for suggesting that the industry thank President Barack Obama for tossing a few dollars to the American coal industry after systematically destroying it for six years.
