The San Juan Star featured two stories on its front page on Saturday, May 27, 2006. One reported on Circa í06, the first ever commercial art fair in the Caribbean, declaring it "a success" and featuring a large color photo of Andres Serrano signing copies of his new book at the San Juan Convention Center. Above this story, the main headline blared the latest news about Puerto Ricoís simmering fiscal crisis, which had recently provoked governor Aníbal Acevedo Vilá to lay off some 95,000 employees temporarily. The legislature, it seemed, was considering a punishing new 6.5 percent sales tax as a solution.
