'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, June 15, 2013, 9:00 p.m.
 

Evgeni Malkin's superiority to me regarding hockey begins with putting on skates. But I could not believe my weary eyes when I read that signing Malkin to a new long-term contract was the No. 1 priority for the Penguins!

Did Penguins general manager Ray Shero watch the playoffs? Of course he did, and closely. Yet, despite his obvious skill and intellect, Shero wishes to continue to pay Malkin to donate the puck to anyone in a non-Pens jersey?

Yes, Malkin is a force but, equally, a dedicated philanthropist where the puck is concerned.

OK, none of our big-time folks seemed to have the spark against Boston (and Boston had a bunch to do with that), but Malkin stood out, to me, as one who fizzled brilliantly.

I don't get it.
