¡Viva Puerto Rico!


On July 24, after weeks of protests by outraged citizens,

Gov. Ricardo Rosselló of Puerto Rico announced he’d step down Aug. 2, due to the leak of misogynist­ic and homophobic texts as well as charges of corruption. Lin-Manuel Miranda was among the stars to protest the Rosselló administra­tion, telling Us that the peaceful demonstrat­ions — now thought to be the biggest in the U.S. territory’s history — were “revolution­ary and inspiring.” Adds the Hamilton scribe, “I think the island of Puerto Rico has done an amazing job of making [itself] heard.”
