Red Right Hand: MINING THE STORY

MINING THE STORY

It's only a matter of time before the San Jose miner movies, books, and LA theatre plays hit. And I'm certain they will be heartwarming tales of the triumph of the human spirit and ingenuity.

That's not the one I want to see. I want to see the satire version. I want to see the one that focuses on these following things:
  • The miners were counseled while sub terra on dealing with sudden fame.
  • They were also given lessons on how to give good interview.
  • That Camp Espereanza was comprised of the miners families, friends, rescue workers, and book agents.
  • The miners were clean-shaven when they emerged from their ordeal.
  • That when Shift Foreman Luis Urzúa, being a good boss and looking out for his employees, made sure he was the last miner out of the hole, there was speculation that he was looking to secure the world's record for being underground.
  • That the miners had contracts drawn up and sent down to them so that they would all profit equally (admirable, but still weird).
Given that they had that video connection down to the mine, I have to wonder if anyone from the company that canned the tuna they rationed for seventeen days tried to get them to do a commercial while they were still down there.
