I wouldn't be so tough on the media. They don't have anything to do with the work needed to recover from either of those events. Yes, they descend
like vultures on the newest stories, but usually still keep up with old ones if there's anything new to tell. I think it'd be silly to continue to
cover either the bridge collapse or Utah miner story 24/7 any longer at this point, because there simply isn't any new news there now. Hurricane Dean
(the new story) certainly has the capability of causing far, far more deaths and damage than the mine collapse or bridge collapse combined.
As far as the miners go, at this point I think the best hope is that they died instantaneously in the original collapse. I couldn't imagine how
horrible it would be if they're still alive, in the dark and cold almost 2,000 feet below the surface with virtually no hope.
