Apologies for the low posting levels, but busy with work. Also had the good fortune to attend a conservation conference about the Sousa Dolphin yesterday, which I will report later today. Meanwhile the blogs are buzzing…..

  • ROC the Boat reports on the US squelching China’s move to put the Taiwan issue to a UN vote. Maddog does likewise.
  • Snarky Tofu recovers a great article on the Anti-Succession Law.
  • Fili hits some sights around Taiwan. Great stuff. Fili also provides a list of guides to life in southern Taiwan.
  • nostalgiaphile kvetches about how China successfully markets itself despite being a repressive, fascist state.
  • The Cogitator argues that if you don’t feel, you’re not truly conscious.
  • Steph blogs on the Teaparker
  • bent rips Ma Ying-jeou. Hope Ma’s Mutterings becomes a regular feature!
  • J Michael argues that US pressure on Taiwan will rise, and the US will attempt to lever Ma into the Presidency.
  • Craig has a photo on Nat Geo’s website. His work is tremendous….be sure to see the other photos on his website.
  • Anarchy in Taiwan writes on the apparently romantic history of the Communist Party of Taiwan.
  • MEDIA: Chinese Dissident Slams Taiwan’s UN bid, thinks Taiwan should apply under ROC. Some dissident — boy that’s thinking boldly and outside the box! VOA reports on the Chiang Kai0shek Statue Park (guess that goes on the list of must-do visits for visiting media reps, along with aboriginal dances and the High Speed Rail).
