“I hope all the citizens of Alabama will be in prayer that the right thing will be done.”–Twinkle Andress Cavanaugh, president of the Alabama Coal Association, asking God to stop new EPA regulations on power plants.

About six thousand years ago

God made dark and light,

Water, land, and down below

A load of anthracite.

And God, whose wisdom knows no bound,

To foil Barack Obama

Covered it with sacred ground

And called it Alabama.

It’s in God’s plan that you can’t find

Coal in Greenwich Village.

He put it where it would be mined

We worship him in pillage.

So sing his praises, as we dig

Our way to Heaven. Churn up

The Earth. God made it very big

So there’d be lots to burn up.
