    I would hope that the Chilean government does the right thing by these miners.

    They'll be exploited.......either by the Chilean gov't or somebody else. There's book deals, movie deals, Guiness records, etc. There's bound to be in-fighting because it's just human nature when there's money involved. There was already some spatting when deciding who would be the last miner up........he would be the new Guiness record holder for longest trapped person to come out alive. The gov't is going to pay them for 6 months......they should all go on a huge getaway with their family and hide out from the papparazzi.

    There is a mining tycoon in the area who is giving them each 10k. Their avg monthly pay is about 700 bucks.

    10K seems an appropriate gesture considering the number of days they were trapped and their lifestyles prior to this incident.

    I'm with Pickup ... I think I would be looking to exploit the situation as best I could.
    Fly me and family to New York City to be on Good Morning America.

    All kidding aside, I would have liked to hear about this at a PCM. Little pride builder in the center kinda thing, instead of how not to get hit while parked. Rant continued elsewhere on this subject..................
