We aren't stashing grenade launchers in the mountains of Montana waiting to overthrow the government by burning coal, or is that how you folks see yourselves? I did some writing long ago and I wasn't interested in frying anyone when I went into a story. I went in thinking there may be a story or there may not be.

As long as you don't mind being lied to !You guys don't understand,it HAS to be negitive to sell papers,and if what he writes doesn't sell he's out of a job.It's the nature of the business.
Do you think he's going to tell you that the article will be negative toward coal?
Do you think the article will say"people save thousands on home heating?That won't sell.
What will sell is people save thousands burning coal,BUT AT WHAT PRICE !blah..blah..blah
there has got to be negativity in there or it wont sell.
I'm paraphrasing:If we dont learn from our past we're doomed to repeat it.
