Trapped Chilean Miners Get Cigarettes, Electricity

Is there some irony in this? Trapped in a mine where it may be hard to breath, but at least the get cigarettes.

Limiting nicotine withdrawal should decrease the chances of murder and mayhem in the mine, so more of them should get out.

Personally, I'm all for giving them whatever they can get down there to keep them happy and comfortable during their ordeal. I don't think they'd have sent down cigs if there was an air problem.
