    It was probably just a bunch of poor Mexicans down in the mine shaft. I'm not racist or anything, but they really are a dime a dozen. What I'm trying to say is they won't be missed. Do you think their families will even know? More then likely they came from a family of 53, so it's more a blessing in disguise then anything else. One less mouth to feed will make a big difference in the montly food budget for some of these families. This type of event should be celebrated, not wept over.

      This is so outrageous and lacking in human compassion, I wonder if it's someone's idea of a joke.

    SLP ; There may very well be a president in the near future with a name like Lopez or Garcia. I can guarantee you one thing, it will never be you or one of denegrated friends. If you are still alive and not in prison, you will still be on welfare and conducting immoral activeities.

    I love the way Americans get full in with witty comments no matter how dire the subject is!
    At least these 55 poor nameless people gave some joy and laughter to others.

    These peple had family just like everyone of us writting on this board. Could there be at least a small amount of compassion for their loved ones, instead of taking up space to discredit yourself as a human being.

    Give Tim a break. He had it right as in mass grave. Mass grave is different than a single grave with family and friends. In Iraq they called them mass graves and no one griped.
