explosive or implosive?

Hi Richard,
Yeah, with my time the way it is, I rarely get out much except for the law teaching. Plus, as I may have mentioned, I am working on my second and third books. So all that keeps me quite occupied.

But I am somewhat interested in anything the locals think is "explosive"....are you sure they didn't say "implosive".

I would not be surprised if the island was going to "implode" due to all the money, human talent, hope, natural resources and everything else it used to have...being sucked out of it; leaving a shell with a vacumm inside.

Oh, oh, I have become cynical about Taiwan.
Well back to work,
take care,

What happened to the ideas in this thread, particularly liaison with the political world on behalf of the foreign community?
"Only the Chinese Communist party comes close to the British Conservatives in its understanding of power – and its capacity to hold and keep it."
