'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, Nov. 23, 2013, 9:00 p.m.
 

As a registered Republican, I made note of the cartoon clown image of President Obama that accompanied John Bolton's column “Exclusive to the Trib: Obama's foreign affairs radicalism carries a heavy cost” (Nov. 10 and TribLIVE.com).

It captured widely accentuated features and added a red bulbous nose, with the word “JOKE” in capital letters underneath it.

If this were drawn by a school child and spread on social media, what would be the fallout? Or what if the same child drew that image of our president and posted it on Facebook?

The terms “bullying” or “racism” come to mind.

We strive to teach our youth tolerance, as well as dignity and respect toward others.

While we may not respect our president's actions, I would hope the media would at least respect the office of the presidency. To do less is a disservice.
