Great News from W. Virginia

The lone survivor of the Sago mine accident is being slowly brought out of his coma and with incredibly promising results so far. The quotes from his neurosurgeon include:

Now if you call his name, he will [open his eyes]. He will track family members and they believe that he has some level of connectivity with them.

If you put a piece of ice in his mouth he will take it and move it around with his tongue and swallow it and chew it and swallow it.

Still it must be remembered that,
