The Virginia effects of the West Virginia stand-down

The Roanoke paper reports here that "Virginia's coal-related businesses, including the Norfolk Southern Railway, hardly seemed to notice Thursday that West Virginia was talking about intensifying the safety measures in its coal mines."

The article also quotes someone as saying: "About half of the coal that comes out of West Virginia passes through Roanoke on its way to utilities and export markets."
