    Wasn't it wonderful to see the Chilean government execute a rescue of such magnitude saving the lives of the 33 miners? With no aid from anyone that I heard anyone say, just good old fashioned help and cooperation from some international friends and the faith of its President and people. Now if we could only get our country to pull together like that we could solve some problems here!

    It is refreshing to see some good news in the morning instead of just tainted and biased political news.

    Hope all the Chilean miners are well and can readjust to life top side.

    Good Morning,
    I have been watching the rescue efforts, I am bothered by something that I just can't seem to let go of.
    Every time another miner comes up the "underground" count goes down. What about the rescuers that were sent down?
    If (God forbid) something was to go terribly wrong and the rescue shaft was for some reason rendered useless, how many men would be trapped underground?
    PLEASE account for the brave men that have (for what we can all pray for will be a short time) given themselves to a hole in the ground.
    For respect to the brave rescuers and their families (that I'm sure are just as concerned as the families of the minors) PLEASE acknowledge them as "underground".
    Thank you,
