'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

Does Luis Fábregas suggest that Tyler Wolfley, the poster child in his cautionary-tale column about legalizing marijuana, “Legal pot: Pa. needs to see the science” , was not dependent on pot before it was legalized in Colorado or that Wolfley would not continue to use it if it were to be recriminalized? The difference between Colorado and Pennsylvania is that in Pennsylvania, Wolfley would stand a good chance of being in jail.

I would be happy to debate with Mr. Fábregas the public-policy merits of Colorado's approach to marijuana use over Pennsylvania's. Pennsylvania has a lot of things to be wary about, but legal pot is not one of them.
