Mr. Peabody's Coal Truck ... 
I've defended the Bush Administration's record on mine safety before - and I don't want to draw conclusions from a small sample of data. But if the AP is correct here, this reflects poorly on Bush's team:

The Bush administration is now reviewing safety equipment in mines after previously scrapping similar initiatives started by the Clinton administration. At the time, the Republicans cited changing priorities and resource concerns, but miners' advocates said pulling those initiatives stopped potentially important safety rules from becoming reality.

I wish there was more reporting presented here: What initiatives? Which Republicans? Some basic 5W journalism would be nice, dontcha think?
