Netherlands Antilles set to be dissolved

I don't know how I missed this article, but it sure is an interesting and significant development for one, like me, who was born and grew up in Curacao.

"Under the new structure, the Netherlands Antilles will be dissolved and Curacao and St. Maarten will become separate, autonomous members of the kingdom, according to the agreement signed by the leaders Saturday night in Curacao." (from Miami Herald)
