Are You Considering A Career In... Mining


As in, underground. Not as in "Data Mining".

According to Fox News, "Mine Tragedy Could Hurt Recruiting Efforts". You think?

Perhaps the mining industry can fight back by sponsoring a remake of "How Green Was My Valley". (How many movies involving coal mines don't involve both a "coming of age" crisis, with either the father dismayed at the thought of the son joining him in the mine or dismayed at the thought that he might not, and a cave-in?)

  1. Maybe they could re-run the Monty Python sketch where the coal mining son visits his university-professor father, with much tension because the son has turned his back on dad's honest profession and is all snooty about it.

    "It's anthracite, Father."
