And today, I got to see clips of miner Edison Pena on the David Letterman show (yes, there's a tilde above the 'n' in 'Pena' but my computer keyboard was possibly made in Arizona and doesn't have one). Just put CBS or Pena or Letterman in your search engine and I'm sure you'll get it--the air date was November 1.
Mr. Pena's face was so expressive and joyous--and the fact that he needed an interpreter actually added to the merriment. He didn't speak English until Letterman mentioned that Pena likes Elvis Presley, which nudged him into singing "Suspicious Minds." Kind of a funny coincidence that the lyrics ("we're caught in a trap/I can't walk out") were perfectly suited to the miners' predicament. And there's Elvis, who's been dead now for longer than he was alive,* transcending cultural barriers once again. EP (both Pena and Presley) lives! It's quite a wonderful segment, so don't miss it.
(*) Ouch! See the comments page because I didn't do the math (correctly) on how long Elvis has been gone.
