LETTER FROM THE EDITOR:

A s we explore the labor difficulties inherent in the United States' strange border relationship with Mexico, things may have taken an even stranger turn. A unique group of organizations including environmentalists, labor unions, and human rights activists are investigating labor practices in a small mining town in Mexico. Tucson Weekly's Tim Vanderpool and Darrin Mortenson provide the details in "Cheap Labor, Cheap Lives?"

Tired of seeing your tax dollars going to wage war on foreign soil? Austin Chronicle's Mike Butts profiles some Austinites that have decided enough is enough in "Not With Their Money."
