I am indulging in a bit of Taiwan nostalgia today by checking out the webcams on this page put up by the government.
I discovered this right after who else pops up in my New York Times RSS feed but President Chen Shui-bian. In the article, the following appears:
Is the NYT trying to hypnotize me? And what does it mean for Taiwan to seek "greater" political independence from "the mainland"? Seems pretty damn independent already, just no one can call it as it is because of the big C. "The Independence that Dare Not Speak its Name!"
The speech was Mr. Chen's first major policy address since his Democratic Progressive Party fared badly in islandwide municipal elections on Dec. 3. His party favors greater political independence from the mainland.
Until today, Mr. Chen had said fairly little in the weeks since the Dec. 3 islandwide municipal elections in which his Democratic Progressive Party, which seeks greater political independence from the mainland, fared badly.
Cheers to Michael Turton for the link to the webcams.
