Great article, example of David's fine work as an investigative reporter. Looks like El Paso leaders won't participate in anything unless it is their idea, complete with publicity photo ops.
Keep up the good work. -- Ray Snare
Has it occurred to the PDNG that any half way intelligent person or company would not want to expose themselves or their employees to a community that is considering re-opening a copper smelter in the heart of their town? -- Debra kelly
Former El Pasoan. I would love to return but with the lack of good street lighting, lack of good streets (cracks and potholes), lack of bike lanes, cheesy houses that lack any style (garage doors making up most of the frontage), and lack of decent pay keeps me away. -- Julio Soto
Very good job in reporting this. It seems to me that a lot of answers are stipulated here; unfortunately, those who can bring about change aren't listening. It's disheartening to see our "leaders" (representatives) not pull together on this one. -- Juan Arturo Muro
People who are creative spend a lot of time doing that - creating - in whatever media they are drawn to. Those who are not creative find ways to make money off of them and blather a lot about it on the way.
I would choose an expensive hotel room because it is cleaner and more comfortable than an inexpensive one. I have stayed in both.
Tribal has it's limitations and dangers. Almost every conflict of the face of the planet can be traced back to tribal attitudes. Carolyn Myss has some interesting thoughts on tribalism and it's effect on stuff ( http://soundstruestore.stores.yahoo.net/aw00533d.html ) -- pam

Interesting perspective. Maybe the editors at Newspapertree should check their inboxes before lambasting The Times for lack of competition. -- Trent
I think the work you all do and the section where you allow readers like us to respond are two ways to compete against any slants or politically motivated angles to any story published by the Times.
Sometimes, by reading the thoughts others have to say allow us to view the same story in different angles and thus, in a complete way.
I support NPT and encourage others to read and contribute to it, too. -- Juan Arturo Muro
You're right, Sito. Words do count.
Felipe -- Felipe de Ortego y Gasca
Editors matter, and you ought to have one before making a silly mistake in an article about silly mistakes. Can you say, ABC? -- Glass House
Great interview! I hope she does well and regardless of what happens at the competition, she is a star and an example for our young people on both sides of the border. I especially liked her maturity in explaining why her education is very important.
-- Juan Arturo Muro
This is exciting having an Olympian as a neighbor. I wish Ms. Rodriguez the best of luck in China and hope that she brings Mexico home some gold.
There is sadly little chance of me seeing her compete unless I am watching television in Mexico. The network coverage we wind up seeing here in the US is not about the events or the athletes, it's an artificially-created broadcast that spends hours focusing on a few cherry-picked "stars" that look good on tv, with hours of background footage and Bob Costas or some equally insincere talking head going on and on about their darlings while they could be covering dozens of other events that we will never see.
I'm curious why Ms. Rodriguez's given name is spelled so differently in your article (Zudikey) and on the Juarez billboard (Sudykey)?
