Recently on, I discussed the Puerto Rican question in an article entitled ¡Viva Puerto Rico Libre! Free Puerto Rico (and the U.S.) Now!

My position is that Puerto Rico is a distinct society and should not become the 51st state of the U.S.A.    Instead, it should be granted its independence.

My column received a lot of publicity thanks to an article about it posted on the website of El Nuevo Día, Puerto Rico´s most widely read newspaper.

The floodgates were opened, and I received e-mails from Puerto Ricans on the island and on the mainland.  I got mail from  from pro-statehood Puerto Ricans, pro-independence Puerto Ricans, Puerto Ricans who support the status quo, and a few who seem to be open to anything.

I’d like to say thank you to all of them.
