The day has finally come! No, not V-Day - I mean, to be serious, not many people actually enjoy Valentine's Day...It's I Love Mountains Day! "iLoveMountains.org is the product of 14 local, state, and regional organizations across Appalachia that are working together to end mountaintop removal coal mining and create a prosperous future for the region." (http://ilovemountains.org/resources).

I believe the holiday was started in Kentucky - regardless it is now being celebrated across the country, with a big part of that happening on Penn's campus. Today dozens of Penn and Temple students will move their bank accounts from PNC - the world's largest financial supporter of mountain top removal. PNC has a special relationship with Penn and 36 other universities that we are attempting to break up (hehehe)!
