A sad situation for Puerto Rico
Puerto Rico is such a beautiful place. It has a very vibrant and interesting culture. But the economy is down in the dumps. It is so bad they look at Mississippi with envy. As this article shows, it is a very complex problem with lots of different issues all combining. That means there are no easy solutions.
When I was there last August, you could see a little of it. Even commercial space in the best locations was vacant. And I have never seen so many police patrolling in my life. I hope things turn around. It is really lovely there.
