Banner mocks topless Judd for coal comments
PRESTONSBURG, KY A topless photo of Ashley Judd emblazoned on a poster that mocks the actress's outspoken opposition to mountaintop removal mining was on display this week at a coal industry-sponsored golf tournament in Kentucky.

"Ashley Judd makes a living removing her top, why can't coal miners?" the 5-by-3-foot poster reads in bold, black letters. It was hanging at a golf tournament Wednesday at StoneCrest Golf Course, which is owned by the city of Prestonsburg.

Paul Hughes, assistant general manager at the golf course, said the banner was up at 7 a.m. when he arrived at work. Hughes said he does not know who made the sign, which uses a photo of Judd from Marie Claire magazine, but tournament organizers hanged the sign on a railing outside the clubhouse at 918 Clubhouse Drive.

1. Well, that's intelligent solid logic.
Ashley Judd makes a living removing her top, why can't coal miners?

It's hard to argue with that logic. :sarcasm:

2. Any protest featuring a topless Ashly Judd picture...
Well I am not in favor of Mountaintop Mining but credit needs to be given where it is due.

3. The poster in question


I think that miners have every right to make a living removing their tops if they choose to.

I would prefer they did not remove mountain tops however.

5. Because they're ugly?
"Ashley Judd makes a living removing her top, why can't coal miners?"

Who wants to look at a topless coal miner? :shrug:

All the best for their new career choice, but I just don't see the free market responding.

7. If the full monty will help the coal owners
they should go for it. Just leave the damn mountains alone.

9. Not great PR for King Coal
since they are mocking one of Kentucky's favorite daughters. It's especially unwise since they mine in much of eastern Kentucky. That's besides the flawed logic though.
