'American Coyotes' Series

Traveling by Jeep, boat and foot, Tribune-Review investigative reporter Carl Prine and photojournalist Justin Merriman covered nearly 2,000 miles over two months along the border with Mexico to report on coyotes — the human traffickers who bring illegal immigrants into the United States. Most are Americans working for money and/or drugs. This series reports how their operations have a major impact on life for residents and the environment along the border — and beyond.

Letter to the Editor
Thursday, Dec. 13, 2012, 8:57 p.m.
 

Regarding the column “Gay marriage” by C.S. Pearce: I don't care who you are or what your credentials are. The Webster's (1979) definition of marriage is “the mutual relation of husband and wife. The institution whereby men and women are joined in a special kind of social and legal dependence for the purpose of founding and maintaining a family.”

This simply cannot happen with two people of the same sex because marriage involves sex between two opposite but equal-in-the-sight-of-God people!

Each partner brings something special and unique to the marriage that you just cannot get with two people of the same sex.

Two people of the same sex may wish to confer benefits to their partner, etc. There could be a legal contract. Call it something else, but don't call it marriage!
