"Err on the side of caution"

David Drake shares his thoughts about the WV mining accident, and concentrates on the PR handling of this tragedy.

After hearing more and more about this via the blogosphere and the local news (WV is right next door and we have coal mining here in OH) I agree with David on this one. There are a lot of residents here in the Valley who are upset about this, even a former coal miner said nothing should have been given to the media until all the facts were known.

My prayers go out to those families. I can't begin to imagine their pain and anger.

Yes, very sad. Reminds me of the Johnny Cash song about mining:

"Dark as a dungeon, damp as the dew.
Where the dangers are double and the pleasures are few.
Where the rain never falls and the sun never shines.
It's dark as a dungeon way down in the mines."
