A thrilling development-- could not be more happy for them and their families.  For an American coming out of a prison in North Korea has to be one of life's peak experiences!

 just heard that they were moved from labor camps a while back, apparently to fatten them up.  hopefully their health is ok after such an ordeal.

Oh my, I didn't think of that.  Hansel and Gretel comes to mind.

 

I too am happy for their families, just wish Otto could have been alive to be included.

I just read an account at 'Newsweek' that suggested that they were able to walk on the plane without assistance.  If true, at least that is a good sign....
