I'm tremendously impressed.

All of Thai boys and their coach are out of the cave, alive.

My read on the odds of this was that they had basically zero chance of success.  But both skill and the weather cooperated sufficiently.  The only casualty was a SEAL who ran out of air (or had a malfunction of a rebreather; the actual cause hasn't yet been disclosed and may never be.)

The water level dropped sufficiently that most of the path was not underwater on the way out.  This was, without question, one of the keys to success.  Without it they had no chance -- with it, well, they had actual success.

So on a day when liberals and far-conservatives alike are screaming in horror... there is one piece of good news.
