no but see he's not. The presidents interests of the moment are not focused there and therefor remain relevant.

Someone should really recommend dropping an audio beacon down the 2 in. hole. That way, the miners could get an audibal bead on where to go. U know, like a smoke alarm alert. Just a suggestion. The camera they're dropping doesn't do anyone any good.

that's not cool either.
it doesn't matter what religion a person believes in, if you were honestly a good person, your (hopefully) good thoughts would be for a good outcome.
just because it's in utah doesn't mean that everyone is mormon.
I am actually pretty close to the miners and their familys to tell you the truth the Miners in this incident are not Mormons they are cathlic Maybe you should all get the facts before you start to talking.

No matter what the religion or ethnicity of the miners, we still must have sympathy for the families of these six people for they have probably suffered a great loss.

as a miners wife my heart goes to the families.my husband goes into a mine 6 nghts. a wk, works about 60 plus, I know everynight I say a prayer for him. I'm also praying for the families of these miners. accidents happens, it could be at any job. Why they happen? but, there is a purpose for it. I believe God is in control of everything. And sometimes life just happens, it doesn't make it right , but it just does. My husbands life is in those mines, he's a 4th. generation miner. So, as a wife, it gets in my blood. FOr the families I'm praying for them.

This is AGONIZING! Look at that picture in the slideshow on MSNBC.COM where Bodie and Lamar are hugging. That was right after the press conference on Wednesday, when BODIE TOLD BOB MURRAY that the mine was not safe to go into because it was just popping and bumping. BOB yelled at him and told him to get back in there, that the mine was fine! Then he comes back today and says, "that mine is alive, there's too much activity, it's just not safe." What an a$$! Not only that, but 12 guys who were on the rescue team asked to be reassigned on Wednesday because they didn't feel it was safe. 12 GUYS! BOB MURRAY needs to get out of the mining industry. I hope they make him pay for this!!

First i want to say i feel horrible about this situations, but now i hear 3 more miners are dead trying to rescue the 6 miners.

I mean its been 12 days since the 6 miners are trapped this is a sad attempt to rescue these men and on top of that losing more men just end this right now so no one else gets hurt.

I hate to say this and i truly mean that with the bottom of my heart, the chances the miners are still alive are slim to none.

they failed with the rescue attempt thats my take.

Hey everyone, it wasn't an earthquake, it was a bounce, they happen all the time in mining, I don't know why Bob Murray would say it was an earthquake but he did and he lied. Bounces happen, it's an accepted part of mining.

My father was the safty director at tower mine,(not sure what it's called since Murray took over) my dad was fired because he spoke up about the poor practice of safty there.
