O’Connor, 19 — during a campus parade sponsored by the College of Fine Arts. O'Connor is accused of parodying the pope while naked from the waist-down.

'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, May 25, 2013, 9:00 p.m.
 

When the young woman attending Carnegie Mellon University paraded around as the pope, naked from the waist down, I thought her parents and the school would be aghast.

Obviously, I was mistaken, because Christian-bashing seems to be very popular these days. If the costume had been of Muhammad, I wonder what the reaction would have been.

College alumni are encouraged to support their alma maters. If CMU alumni continue financial contributions and/or express no outrage about this incident, we must assume they fully support the direction chosen by the university.

Parents of potential future CMU students may want to consider sending their children and tuition to another school with a different direction.
