'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, Jan. 25, 2014, 9:00 p.m.
 

The framework for private liquor sales is within the very fiber of the American promise — free enterprise.

Here's the deal: Anyone with a simple retail business license can buy liquor in bulk and sell it at retail for whatever price the market will bear. No special deals for beer distributors. No more special deal for state employees. No big fees for licenses, no buddy-buddy arrangements. Just straight business. Sell to minors, go to jail. The market will determine which stores will prosper and which will not.

Let's stop the delays, let's stop the lies and let's stop protecting the sacred cows. Free enterprise works to serve the public.

Every politician clings to the flag and proclaims his love and respect for it. OK. Start living it, today.
