'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, March 1, 2014, 9:00 p.m.
 

If I had not read it with my own eyes, I would have considered it just about inconceivable that the Trib, that very same Trib owned by a descendant of Judge Thomas Mellon and that regularly publishes columns by Walter Williams and Thomas Sowell, could have also published the front-page news story by Christopher S. Rugaber of The Associated Press headlined “Low inflation's ugly side? Weak economy”.

Does the editor of the front page understand what is often (alas, not always) written on the Opinion page? Does the editor of the front page read the Opinion page? Can the editor of the front page even read? Why does the owner permit this inconsistency, let alone drivel, to appear?

I know that the editors of the Opinion page are familiar with Bastiat, Mises, Williams and Sowell. How can this happen? Geez!
