Puerto Ricans voted Tuesday on an important issue of their own: whether to join the United States, go independent, or establish a sovereign free association.
Statehood won, but not without division--the pro-statehood governor was kicked out.
His replacement is planning a constitutional assembly in 2014.
I didn't know how a state joins the union--good thing there's an Internet!
Update: Excellent breakdown of the situation at Daily Kos: Puerto Rico--Statehood and Status.
