Comparing the incomparable will not do Taiwan any favors          
But, the two are different in their histories, cultures, values and interests. Extreme caution is required when making any comparisons between the two. One must not make wrong analogies based on superficial similarities.
 
 
The choice of the century for South Korea          
Probably the biggest issue facing the man elected president tomorrow will be how to deal with the collapse of North Korea
 
 
Mayor Ma needs to learn humility          
In the 15 years since I first met Ma, I've watched him transform. He went from trembling out of a lack of confidence, to arrogance, to evasiveness in times of trou-ble. Frankly, I am thoroughly disappointed with him. He is a brat spoiled by the admiration of women and his former superiors. He has never tasted defeat. He has relied on favoritism throughout his career. This plain sailing has made him arrogant.
 
 
The winds of change and the media          
In fulfilling its role as the fourth estate, the Taiwan's media must strive to perform its function as the guardian of democracy and the public interest. In doing so, however, the media also must be aware of its social responsibility and exercise a reasonable degree of self-regulation, particularly when it comes to safeguarding the national interest and national security.

Chen's China moves show maturity

Little is real when all the world is just a stage          
I said, "Since they've deliberately made a bogus tree, why not make it even more bogus, and tie even more kinds of fruit onto it -- such as tanger-ines, tomatoes, pineapples, bananas, peaches, or even durians? As long as it's a fake, why not go all the way, right? One tree that can grow different kinds of fruit -- now that would truly be something miraculous -- definite proof of how outstanding the Chinese people are."
 
 
Chen Shui-bian's baptism by fire          
To the public who support grassroots democracy, Chen's government means what John F. Kennedy did to Americans in the 1960s. The rise of a new, youthful generation of leaders is a sign that society is getting tired of geriatric politics, which is the epitome of paternalism and authoritarianism. It is also a sign of vitality in society. This is exactly why Chen's government is significant: Taiwan's political culture is undergoing a revolution that is ridding the country of paternalism and authoritarianism.
 
 
Yang Chuan-kuang deserves better          
Yang, who won a silver medal in the decathlon in the 1960 Rome Olympics and in doing so became the first to earn a medal in the Games for Taiwan, has returned home in ill health and to little fanfare
