MAJOR MINERS: Sunday was my

MAJOR MINERS: Sunday was my birthday and as I returned from partying at around 5 AM, I saw the happy news that all nine of the miners in Western Pennsylania had been rescued successfully. There was something so comforting about that- with with all the terrorism, economic sluggishness, corporate corruption, priest-child abuse, kidnapping of little girls, and baseball labor unrest that have dominated the news lately, I think it's wonderful to finally have a national news story that's actual, you know, good news. Also, it's likely that this incident will give miners the well-deserved, long-delayed national appreciation that firemen got after September 11.
