In his Oct. 13 commentary, Joseph Legueri claimed some of those on the Iron Range displaying “We Support Mining” signs are confused about what mining they are supporting. Hopefully I can bring some clarity to the confusion.
If you drink out of a glass, eat out of a bowl, brush your teeth, walk on a sidewalk, have windows in your home or scrub your sink with Ajax, you support mining. If you own a phone, use a computer, watch television or salt your popcorn, you support mining.
If you fish, canoe, drive a car, use a road, refrigerate your food or take a morning shower, you support mining — and mining supports you.
