After a good, long run, we have decided to close our forums in an effort to refocus attention to other sections of the site. Fortunately for you all, we're living in a time where discussion of a favorite topic now has a lot of homes. So we encourage you all to bring your ravenous love for discussion to Chuck's official Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr and Instagram. And, as always, you can still post comments on all News updates. Thank you for your loyalty and passion over the years. These changes will happen June 1.

I was thinking of a headline at CNN that read: Miners not told full story about their plight.

It is a tragedy, but it makes me think that we are all trapped. Trapped in our consciousness and enslaved to our existence and just as with the miners the "authorities do not tell us of our full plight" just keep shopping, working, consuming....

From the article:
Authorities believe it would be too much of a psychological blow to tell the miners that experts estimate it could take three to four months to drill the men out

I guess it would be too much of a psychological blow to tell us that our entire system is bankrupt, that we are slaves to our existence, it makes we wonder what they are not really telling us?

My mind boggles with the writing potential drawing the corollaries between the plight of the miners and our plight as enslaved customers to the nouveau litigated-America dream. I thought others could add the "things" that they think we are being spared from in the name of civility and progress?
