Posts have been scarce these last few weeks because (1) work is busy, which is good! and (2) not a lot has been happening of interest in the areas I normally blog about. However, there are a few nuggets out there today worthy of attention:
The DPP is questioning the total lack of transparency between the KMT-CCP communications apparatus which will inevitably guide the policy decisions publicly announced by each side.

雖然總統府否認要恢復國統會的運作，但總統府對國統會的實質態度是什麼，並未明確表態，反而留下更多問號。Although the Presidential Office has denied doing anything to reactivate the National Unification Council, the Presidential Office's actual attitude toward the Council is still not clear, and in fact there are now even more questions.
Also, the former first lady has broken her leg but is getting treatment at Taida Hospital, so she should recover.
