Taiwan Matters somehow managed to win the "Best Political Blog" category in Taiwanderful's Best Taiwan Blog Awards 2008. The other blogs in the running for this category were A-gu's (阿牛) That's Impossible: Politics from Taiwan, Robert Maguire's The Only Redhead in Taiwan, and two more recent entries into the Taiwan political blogsphere: DEMO! Taiwan Democracy Movement, and Daphne and two other Taiwanese-Americans write Taiwanese Heart, Global Perspectives (台灣心、國際眼).
Thanks to David and Fili for hosting the awards. Thanks also to everybody who voted for this blog.

Here are the rest of the winners in all categories. Go there, and get to know many more Taiwan blogs.
We now return you to the impending martial law. Also take a look at the "FAPA statement on recent arrests" and "Worrisome Trends in Politicizing Law Enforcement?" via Michael Turton's blog. J. Michael Cole's blog also covers this with a post titled "Young Taiwanese fear authoritarian revival." YouTube user cassidytw posted a video called "國家危機_馬娘娘的政治謊言_自我閹割" (National crisis: Empress ("wussy") Ma's political lies, self-castration).
