Black the HORRIBLE death of a Miner. SMH
I bet the owner won't go down in the mines.
Black Lung is a danger to them ALL. Their bosses won't allow them to talk about Black Lung. SHAME
18 young?90 years ago at 18 you were already an experienced miner with years under your belt of going down the mine.Ironically teens today mature a lot faster than teens 100 years ago.If you were to follow a strictly utilitarian view using someone very young makes more sense today than in the past.15 year olds today frequently reach 6 feet or more in height something that 100 years ago was very rare.
and it goes awkward as she asks about black lung something long known.. p.s. Nexium will wipe out your kidneys
Coal mine,moonshine,or movin it on down the line
