Twenty-five coal miners died and four others are missing in a big underground explosion at Massey Energy’s Upper Big Branch Mine, making it the worst U.S. mining disaster in more than two decades. This is the latest deadly disaster involving coal baron Don Blankenship’s Massey Energy, which has been repeatedly cited for serious safety violations. Blakenship has referred to environmentalists - including Al Gore and Nancy Pelosi - as quote "Totally wrong, absolutely crazy," and labeled them "communists" and "atheists." While cutting back on safety and shedding unionized jobs to where his company is now 98 percent union-free, uber-Christian Blankenship raked in $18 million dollars for himself in 2008. If there is a hell, this man is headed for it.
