Like most people I was following the tragic Sago mine disaster. I couldn’t help noticing that the CEO of International Coal Group, the owner of the mine, was a fellow named Ben Hatfield. Hatfield? I thought to myself. As in the Hatfields and the McCoys?
Radio reports about the lone survivor of the disaster caused me to prick up my ears further, but carefuly research has established that the man fighting for his life in Pittsburgh is in fact named McCloy. Randal L. McCloy, Jr., to be exact.
Whew! Close one.
