Sago Anniversary

On the anniversary of the Sago Mine explosion, The Charleston (W.Va.) Gazette continues to probe safety issues behind the blast that killed 12 miners. Ken Ward Jr. reports that "the Sago disaster might not have happened if regulators and the coal industry had heeded the warnings... from a series of other lightning-induced explosions in the U.S. and abroad dating back more than 30 years, federal and state investigators have learned."
