What beautiful pictures tonight as the first of the trapped Chilean miners have been brought to safety!
Visit Michelle Malkin's article Celebrating American Greatness in Chile for background on Coloradan Jeff Hart, who drilled for 33 days straight and successfully reached the miners. Hart was quoted as saying "This is the most important thing I have done in my work life and probably the most important thing I will ever do."
There's much more information in the post, including the contributions of NASA and other American companies.
Michelle's post has been updated many times with rescue photos.
The Anchoress also has uplifting comments and links.
My favorite British paper, London's Daily Telegraph, has a terrific continuously updated page covering the rescue process.
