This is one of the most fascinating and disturbing series of posts that comes up in my regular feed.

111 miners die in a disaster, in a mine already identified as hazardous by safety inspectors. Yet it takes seven years for the law to change to "hey maybe we should allow inspectors to enforce their findings". 
On March 25, 1947, the Centralia Coal Company's No. 5 mine in Centralia, Illinois exploded, killing 111 workers. This disaster, caused by extremely unsafe working conditions from employers utterly indifferent to the lives of their workers, helped move forward, however slowly, the nation's push ...

Your deeply cynical suggested reading for the week. There is much cynicism to be mined from the rest of the blog as well.
