Resumption of feud narrowly averted

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.

    I suspect you may have wrestled, at least for a minute or two, with whether you could/should post this piece, given the tragedy of the situation.
    And I can’t speak for everyone, I can only speak for myself and my family, and most of the people who live on the same street that we live on when I say: yes.
