Fourteen brave protesters are spending the weekend doing a sit-in at the office of the Governor of the State of Kentucky, Steve Beshear, in an attempt to draw attention to the issue of mountaintop removal mining and to change the governor’s mind.  Congratulations to the brave fourteen and here’s hoping that they manage to effect some change in the state of Kentucky.
