Capitalism is ALIVE and WELL in Chile * I'm sure others will do a better job of thanking the MANY, MANY who supplied parts of the process what enabled the miners in Chile to remain alive underground for almost 2 months and then arrive at the surface of the earth * HEALTHY * over a 2 day process.
A SPECIAL thanks to the Berlin, PA company * Center Rock, Inc * that provided the drill bit for the rescue shaft. The president of Center Rock called the Chilean president, offered the bit and they accepted the offer.
Many others around the world offered assistance in this endeavor and the Chilean president was gracious in thanking them.
Reading this article, I too did not know that such socks existed.
