History in general of the Virgin Islands
- FEMA police invade Virgin Islands
- From Jim Cook, 13 December, 1995. In the aftermath of a devastating
hurricane, myriads of government agencies descended on the tiny
islands to "reconstruct" and "help." Among these
are hundreds of "FEMA Police."
- Fuss Over Hairstyle
- Yahoo! News, 24 August 1999. A long-simmering dispute
over a law barring dreadlocked Rastafarians and people
appearing to be hippies from entering the British Virgin
Islands has again raised its head.
