Crowded with news...
  • Jerome Keating's piece from last week in the Taipei Times on the laziness of the international media was picked up by Asia Media. I love this line: When Taiwan is mentioned, the stock phrase appears: "Taiwan, which China considers a renegade province." Fair game, for that is what China considers Taiwan.

  • Jason blogs on Taiwan's exciting new policy of entering the UN under the name of Taiwan, which is sure to succeed. And in other news, a flock of flying pigs alighted briefly on Taipei 101 before resuming their southward migration ahead of winter.

  • I'll do the ongoing Shih Ming-te Show in a separate post....
