'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

For all who believe the government should run, oversee or control most everything, take a look at the poor U.S. Postal Service, a quasi-private entity that cannot do anything without government approval. It can't even stop Saturday delivery, which most of us couldn't care less about.

As private delivery literally kicks USPS' butt, the government dictated the next unsustainable plan for this poor “free enterprise.”

Does this sound familiar? I love you government people: As we cram another trillion dollars into our deficit to make you happy, fortunately you will be gone when your children and their children and their children pay the price!

Not my problem, eh?
