    Prosecutor: Mine collapse was 'perfect' disaster - By PAUL FOY, BusinessWeek
    A federal prosecutor looking into the collapse of a Utah mine said the operator was struggling to meet production quotas and was aggressively taking the last of the coal inside a slowly crumbling mountain -- all 'recipes for a disaster.'

    U.S. Attorney Brett Tolman said that even if he finds evidence of negligence at Crandall Canyon, it might not be enough to warrant criminal charges -- and he wasn't inclined to prosecute 'bad business' practices, either. He said he was still looking deeper for evidence that could be brought before a grand jury.
