That's pretty fucked up

About 2 hours ago, I glanced at MSN and the headline read that 12 of the 13 people trapped in the West Virgina mine were found ALIVE. I breathed a sigh of relieve and went about my business.

Now, as I prepare to go to bed 2 hours later, the headlines have changed. Despite earlier reports, only 1 miner was found alive. The rest DIED.

How in God's green earth does a mistake like this happen? I'm sure that in the coming days, blame will be placed on the press, the mine, and even the families of the miners. Any way you look at it, it's a shame.

My heart goes out to the families of the miners and the one survivor. They've all truly been through a tremendous ordeal.
