Saipan (pop. 53,855 in 2013) is the largest island of the Northern Mariana Islands, with its capital called Capitol Hill, same as my home neighborhood here in Seattle. Well, well, well.

‘The Northern Mariana Islands cast 9 votes for Donald J. Trump!‘ yelled their representative on the floor of the convention center today, during the official count of the votes that saw Trump be officially nominated as the 2016 Republican Party nominee for President of the United States.  ‘How bizarre, I thought‘, and where in the world is this speck of island anyway?. (It’s in the north Pacific, close to Guam).  And if I were king for a day I would terminate their ‘United States Commonwealth’ status immediately (as punishment for voting for Trump, of course).
