Stealing my lines

The main article in the latest issue of MP Magazine poses the question, "Does the CNMI want to become what many have termed the 'Amsterdam of the Pacific?'"


Come on, I coined that phrase! Give credit where credit is due.

The issue is now available at several locations, including Joeten. Pick up a copy and support the newest, independent source of media in the Marianas. If you want to subscribe, visit their website at

Individual issues are not yet available for sale online, but hopefully they will be in the near future.

Why do we have to impose other famous placenames on the CNMI for the Pacific? Soon well into the future when the Marianas has weathered the storms on the eighth continent it would be known as the 'Saipans of the World'. A New Saipan here and a Lutaville there and a Tinianburg in Europe.

Generations from now, what is now known as Switzerland will be asking themselves, "Do we want to be known as the 'Saipan of Europe?'"

Well, in terms of Soccer, many people in Ireland use the phrase "another Saipan" to describe anything disastrous.

Come to think of it, it's never really positive is it? Like getting "Shanghai'd".
