France24 - Chileans celebrate heroic rescue of all miners
AFP - A complex, against-all-odds rescue of 33 miners trapped in Chile for more than two months transfixed this nation and the world Wednesday, with wild celebrations breaking out at its successful completion.
  
The ascent of the last of the miners, grizzled leader Luis Urzua, capped nearly 22 hours of euphoric scenes happening every 30 minutes or so, when each of the trapped men was winched individually to the surface through a narrow escape shaft.

getting turned off by the ubernationalistic turn this story's taking...

the billionaire pres celebrating the gold mine heroes and flagwaving away, with industrial safety what it is...

cheesy. it's a universal story, let it be that, instead of piggyback politics-as-per.

focus that emotion into fuelling deeper respect for the earth and less national anthemism!

Hah. And you didn't even see the WSJ story calling it a triumph of poor, maligned capitalism.
