'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.

I was amused to see the full-page ad paid for by the United Mine Workers of America in the July 31 Trib. The ad warned of dire consequences for electrical consumers, coal miners, boilermakers, etc., as a result of the EPA and its Clean Power Plan.

The part that amused me was remembering when the UMW endorsed Barack Obama for president. He said in plain English that he would do this, but the union members marched to the polls like good comrades and pulled the big “D” lever.

To quote Obama's favorite reverend, “America's chickens are coming home to roost.”
