Good Morning Omniloquacious,
Yeah, I should get back to posting here from time to time. It is hard to believe I have been gone from the Old County for over three years now. I kind of miss it. What caused me to wander over here was a brief news item on Yahoo that mentioned that Ma had won a second term. That caused me to wonder how things were back there.
As for how American law and famous books about American law are fairing that I don't know. I remember about a year ago I had the big author heartbreak! Somebody was selling a copy of my witness examination book on Taiwan e-bay-----------for 50NT! I wept bitter tears, why couldn't they have used it as a doorstop (it is a hardback after all) or let it collect dust on their shelf, but to sell it on Ebay for 50NT. But, we authors must be strong.
On a more serious note, I have completely fallen out of touch with Taiwanese legal development, human rights situation and the high profile cases (I guess Ex-Pres Chen is in prison??, is the latter day Madam Soong--i.e. Mrs. Chen Shui Bian---still dodging court appearances??).
In any event, I will try and get involved again. Hope all is well with you and your family.
