Coal

It’s an election year, so once again coal and coal workers have become political capital. Once again- wash, rinse, repeat -the tired old garbage is getting dragged out in the political debates as coal miners and their families are propped up in front of news cameras.

There’s been a lot of talk about LGBT people and public restrooms lately. Everyone from conservative pundits to Ted Cruz are out there fear mongering their little hearts out about it. We have to, they say, pass laws that are hugely discriminatory and often reaching far beyond simple restrooms or else “those people” will get into the public restrooms with you and *gasp* your kids! Let’s talk two key facts of reality here before we carry on with the hyping of the fear train.

Tombs of the Blind Dead

They were a unique creation that were slapped with the zombie label. Although that was only after they were billed as something so far out off the mark- and more than a wee bit dishonest -that it has become something of an exploitation theater history legend.
