We got the Marianas after WWII, I believe. They were colonies of Germany before WWI, League of Nations Mandate territories administed by Japan between the wars, and semi-autonomous territories under US administration since. The population is very small.

With all due respect to Parry, on the Miers nomination, I got there first. It's nice to see that I'm not the only person who's figured it out, though.

Jonathan - I think it's cool we have islandes I never heard of. Maybe I'll win the lottery and retire there.

Ahistoricality - I should have linked to your post. (Taken care of in a later entry.)
