    Hundreds of other coal miners die each year from black lung and other respiratory and heart diseases caused from years of breathing in coal dust and other pollutants.
    They don't want a full investigation, that's just talk.

    If Congress uses their subpoena power, Blankenship will simply use his Fifth Amendment right to avoid answering their questions. The last thing they want is a full investigation into the long, long, long string of safety violations at Massey mines everywhere. Massey management is criminal. The investigation should be conducted by the DOJ, not by Congress, and charges brought against every manager and executive in the company.

    I'll find some good links for stories on Blankenship. He is so damn corrupt.
