'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.

I think there's a very good use for the prison in Greensburg that the state plans to close: Turn it into a school.

At the rate that panic-stricken school boards are fortifying our existing schools, they are starting to resemble prisons. How long before we have armor-plating on school buses?

In the '50s, we had lots of guns, but nobody was shooting up schools. Maybe that's because back then God was allowed in the schools.

Maybe we should give that a try.

Here's a thought: Put a chapel in every school and let's see how that works.
