The Coal miners wife Ruby, was a heroin indeed! Gave the appearance of an uneducated hillbilly with a high I.Q.. Displayed charactor, idealism, and held to the fact that a principle of right was worth standing for. To quote line, ....''if it don't taste good, you spit it out. That is what God gave us a tongue fer.'' Although this atrosity took place in the 70's, we still see the coruption and greed of upper tycoons who run rough-shod over the vital/grass root and backbone workers. Perhaps rough-shod is not the proper word here, I should say,... thoes who would reward the straw bosses and persecute the workers. Employee's are important, they have names, souls, families and feelings. They are not just faceless, nameless, production, expendable entities, or numbers entered into a computer. It is such folk of hardy true grit and hard working stock from all races that has made that county what it is today! Unfortunaltly we still have such Examples of criminal and usury behaviour today, such the recently exposed lower class executives of Enron, WorldCom, Tyco executives and on and on. The selling out of the American worker for their own greed and selfishness. If we do not learn from the lessons of history, then history will indeed repeat itself in the future. Heart warming, heart throbing, and heart felt. Difinetly a heart land and a heart beat of intestinal fortitude throughout! Say, do they have a six star rating?Was this review helpful?
