Hope the weekend is going well. We learned a lot about mountaintop removal the last class. I think everyone knows it's terrible, but for some reason it continues... Have you guys ever seen the movie Ferngully? Massey Energy kind of reminds me of the villain in that, lol. I'd be interested to see if the guys in charge of that are really as one-dimensional and outright evil as they're portrayed.
For future classes, it'd be nice to have more discussions around the table about opinions or debatable topics with insight from people's varied backgrounds. I think that'd help us not only get to know each other better, but also help us learn about what's going on in the world and how that compares to what's going on in Appalachia.
Also, snacks would be nice! :P Maybe we could have a sign-up system heheh
