Pretty... say, they are now giving direct flights from O'Hare to St.Thomas? They must have expanded the airport over there - there used to be a time when most of their flights had to come through MuÃ±oz MarÃ:censor:n airport in Puerto Rico.
There is a whole story about the beauty of St. John. Rockefeller got to go around buying like every single plot of land in the island that he could find. By the time he owned almost all of the island, he donated most of it to the U.S. Government under the condition they made a National Park out of it, turning into what is today: An island which for the most part is virtually preserved in the original state it was when Columbus arrived. Of course, he donated all those lands after he put away a portion for his own resort, so with all the protected lands no one would set up competition.
