I want to take this time to apologize to those in the coal industry who were offended by my blog. This blog was done "tongue in cheek"...basically to make fun of a sticker....but I realize now I did a poor job of writing since so many of you took my comments to heart. That was never my intention. I now realize I'm not as funny as I thought I was. Anyway....nobody made me write this....I took i...t upon myself because what I said....even though meant in a joking manner....was wrong...and for that I'm sorry....I really am....and hopefully you will accept my apology. My mom also screamed at me and reminded me I come from a family of coal miners...and you know if you make mom mad....you really screwed up...and I did. Sorry.
