Gracias a Dios

The trapped Chilean miners have all been rescued, and Mrs. Paco and I sat spellbound in front of the television watching live coverage of these men being brought to the surface, one by one, in the special capsule designed to pull them out of the deep earth (Here are some video highlights).

Election officials in Atascosa County Texas were also watching, it seems, and got a little carried away (H/T: Captain Heinrichs).

Update: Gracias, as well, to Center Rock, Inc., the small company based in Pennsylvania that developed the drill that made the rescue possible.

The Chilean rescue was indeed spellbounding. Their story becomes more amazing when facts come out, like their ration of 2 spoons of tuna and half a cracker every 48 hours.

I couldn't help but ponder what the atheists and liberals would make of the miners' overwhelming gratitude to God for their rescue. Wonder what they make of the good ol' USA being instrumental in the rescue.

As for TX, funny that it was "prior" employee, and all the "current" employees never caught it. Frankly, I'm surprised it was TX.
