The first of thirty-three trapped miners has been rescued from deep underground in Chile. Each miner will have to be extracted through a narrow tube that was drilled almost half a mile down to where the men have been trapped for two months.
In other news, a 16-year-old girl in Toulouse was attacked on the street by her classmates for being too blond.

Thank God! We all were praying for the miner’s rescue.
The 2nd one has come up. Can you imagine, he brought rocks as souveniers! What a guy!
God be with them and with us all!
Blond hair is hated here as well. Having blond hair usually means a person is stupid, if not then they are evil. “Blond, blue-eyed” is almost always followed by something close to “Nazi”.
