"Wendell Berry, others, talk coal with governor"

Kentucky author and poet Wendell Berry and a group of environmentalists will be spending the weekend inside the state Capitol after staging an impromptu meeting with Gov. Steve Beshear.

Berry and more than a dozen activists demanded an end to coal mining practices that destroy eastern Kentucky mountains.

After 45 minutes of give-and-take with the governor in the early afternoon, Berry and activist Teri Blanton, a former chair of Kentuckians for the Commonwealth, told Beshear they did not intend to leave.
