Sago Mine Owner and Wife Whirlwind Party Hopping
http://www.nydailynews.com/front/story/385965p-327513c....

Some upper-crust types in New York and Palm Beach are tut-tutting over the whirlwind party-hopping of billionaire Sago, W. Va., coal mine owner Wilbur Ross and his wife, society columnist Hilary Geary, in the weeks since the Jan. 2 explosion that killed 12 miners and left one in a coma.

"It's really quite terrible - especially Hilary Geary's column in Quest magazine," an anonymous bluenose sniffed to Lowdown, noting that the platinum-blond Geary - who's the third wife of Ross, her third husband - writes a frothy feature teeming with Social Register types.

Ross is the founder and chairman of International Coal Group Inc., which owns the safety-challenged Sago mine.

"Mr. Ross moves in different circles than coal miners," United Mine Workers spokesman Bill Smith said yesterday. "That's been evident since he formed ICG, and it remains evident today."

2. Well, how nice for them.
"It's a tricky business, but they're not going to stop their lives because of it," said Quest editor David Patrick Columbia. "I think it's a very rough time for them."

Tell that to the 12 families of the dead miners.

4. That's how bad things have become--filth like this don't even ACT as if
they care--they don't feel the need to pretend. Screw the poor, screw the dead, screw human suffering and misery.
