Miners in Chile

So its Tuesday as I write this, the Miners in Chile are finally being pulled up. Its funny, the president of Chile is there greeting each and every miner coming up. I don't know about you guys, but even if hes doing it just to look good for the public, my impression is that he is actually genuinely caring for them. Well I guess thats the good news for today. Anyone have thoughts and opinions on this?

  1. I think it's awesome, but you do raise a good point - he could be doing it just to make himself look good, and maybe he is - but honestly, it's hard NOT to care that these men have basically been in Hell for the last 2 1/2 months, and are finally out of that hole in the ground. Good news is hard to find nowadays.

  3. Wow didn't even hear about this happening! That sucks when stuff like this happens. I suppose your always taking a risk having a job like this... Oh well.

  6. I gather it is for the publicity. It's not a presidential matter, but if that is your impression, then it's likely working. I'm not buying it though.

  7. Apparently they're fighting over who gets to go out last, as the person to go up last will get the most media attention
