President Trump could loosen regulations on coal as a short term way to pump life back into the Appalachian economy where he has lots of support. But to stay true to those supporters over time he needs to supplant that industry with others. If many, stable, well paying jobs are created there, those ex-coal miners will have no reason to bemoan the loss of jobs in a dirty, dying, and dangerous business.

Relax. It's just fun-spirited hijinks from those crazy guys over at Sun. It's like that time that Scott McNealy and Jonathon Schwartz snuck into the Microsoft headquarters and kidnapped Goatly, the Microsoft mascot, right before their big Windows ME launch. But then the goat ate a stack of Solaris installation diskettes in the closet where they hid it, and got so sick they thought it was going to die. So they had to return it before anyone found out but old Mr. Balmer caught them and made them promise never to do anything like that again. Those kooky kids!
