The story of the 33 miners trapped 2,300 feet underground in Chile is remarkable. What will be more amazing is if they all come out alive in four months, once a rescue shaft has been dug down to them.

I’m sure the mining company can keep them fed and hydrated through the smaller hole they’ve already drilled, but I keep wondering about the conditions down there. Spending a third of a year with that many people in a confined space is something that not even the most overzealous “Big Brother” contestant would sign up for.

I feel sorry for any of the 33 men who snores. I’d give it a week before the rest of the guys go Piggy in “Lord Of The Flies” on him.
