Puerto Rico: Hopes, Realities, a New Republic?

By: Fergus Hodgson - @FergHodgson - Sep 19, 2013, 4:07 pm

As a leading PanAm blogger, Frank Worley-Lopez continues to garner media attention, and yesterday he accepted an in-depth interview with Jeff Crouere on WGSO-990AM. The show, Ringside Politics, based in New Orleans, has a wide local and online audience — with callers from across the country — and I have been listening to it since my Louisiana days as a reporter and editor in 2010 and 2011.

Jeff and Frank discuss the political leanings of the residents on Puerto Rico, the Island’s major problems such as corruption and indebtedness, the likelihood of statehood, and the basics of Frank’s plan from A Puerto Rican Manifesto.
