Tree-sitting pair mark 10 days in W.Va. perchGimme that sentence again?
Marfork, W.Va. (AP) -- Two strip-mining protesters who have taken up residence in a tree near a coal mine in southern West Virginia are catching up on their reading and using rain water to do their laundry.
Catherine-Ann MacDougal and Becks Kolins have spent 10 days on a platform atop an oak tree to make their anti-mining point.
The pair is located 80 feet above the ground near the Bee Tree surface mine on Coal River Mountain in Boone County. The mine is owned by Virginia's Alpha Natural Resources.
They are affiliated with Radical Action for Mountain People's Survival. The group's mission: non-violent, locally supported action to bring an end to strip mining in Appalachia.
Kolins told the Register-Herald of Beckley the experience is "really pretty relaxing." [link]
"Catherine-Ann MacDougal and Becks Kolins have spent 10 days on a platform atop an oak tree to make their anti-mining point."
They're perched in an oak tree to make the point that strip mining is bad.
No. Nothing muddled about that point.
The real point? Times must not be as bad as we thought, considering the fact that two nitwits have the time to sit around in an oak tree for days for no good reason.
A few more points. Mine. Grow up. Get a job. Get a life. Do your parents know you're stuck on stupid?
