I have previously expressed concerns about the lack of transparency and financial disclosures in the Puerto Rico bankruptcy process. Riddled with conflicts of interest, the process has been unsettling for many of us with a personal stake in Puerto Rico.

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. - The novel coronavirus death toll in Florida's prison system reached 60 yesterday, as a massive surge of infection continues to spread between workers and the people serving time.
