'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, March 14, 2013, 8:55 p.m.
 

The news story “Labor group won't endorse candidate for Pittsburgh mayor” (March 9 and TribLIVE.com) chronicling the candidates who appeared before the Allegheny County Labor Council omitted a very significant event.

Josh Wander, a Republican seeking the Republican Party's nomination for Pittsburgh mayor, appeared before the labor council, along with all the other candidates the story mentioned, to ask for its endorsement. If we are to truly stop the political inbreeding and regain true two-party rule in Pittsburgh after almost a decade of mind-numbing debt, the Trib should at least give fair representation to both parties.

The Trib may have not considered Wander's viability, but he is just as viable as many of the latecomers to the Democratic Party's feeding frenzy over Mayor Luke Ravenstahl's unexpected abandonment of his re-election campaign over recent revelations.
