Chilean miners don't get to play video games

The 33 miners trapped in a mine in Chile are hoping to get out in early November - possibly even October. While they're down there, they'll be able to watch TV, but not play video games. A psychiatrist who's part of the rescue operation told the Washington Post that the games encourage isolation. He said:
"With earphones, if they're listening to music and someone calls them, asking for help or to warn them about something, they're not available. What they need is to be together."
