A Fine Mess: Perhaps this is why International Coal Group thinks $2 million is a generous donation to the dead miners' fund. "At one point last year, the Mine Safety and Health Administration fined [ICG] $440 for a 'significant and substantial' violation that ended in the death of a Kentucky man." No, there are no zeroes missing from that number. And yes, the article says the fine has still not been paid. Maybe they could start another fund to raise the $440.

    Rather than try to get rid of an agency whose mission the majority of the public supports, you simply slash its funding so it can't do its job. This is "stealth deregulation," and it works really well for those who those who don't want the government to play a role in protecting our environment, our workers, you name it.
