'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
Saturday, March 23, 2013, 9:00 p.m.
 

Concerning gay marriage: It is physically impossible for two men to be married. It is physically impossible for two women to be married.

The definition of “marriage” is “to join and become one.” Two men cannot become one. Two women cannot become one. A man and a woman can become one.

And what is the one? The one is the child. There is no marriage if there is no child.

To be wed and to be married are two different states of being. If you remember, you were not married until you consummated your wedding vows. Upon conception, you became married, the child being part of the man and part of the woman. Two become one.

Again, the progressives have forgotten the child. And it seems that the conservatives have also forgotten the child.
