The US Congress that hasn't lifted a finger to halt the cataclysm of national economic disasters has decided to investigate a mine collapse in Huntington, Utah.
The importance of workers' lives and the value of industrial safety not withstanding, Congress looks like the little Dutch boy with his finger in the dyke while a nation of teen moms and dads are procreating like Catholics married to Mormons.
Nine miners is a tragedy. Ninety percent of Americans caught in the caved in economy of the Bush Misadministration is a travesty wrapped in a disaster.
The poetic justice of the situation is found in President Bush's opposition to the investigation of the mine collapse: "Mining corporations are extremulously cautious. If nine miners died in Utah, why aren't we investgagatin the ten thousand miners that didn't die but just got silicosis or black lung. The liberals just love the bad news! Vote Johnny McBush, the new old Bush!"
