Deep thoughts, April 20, 2009

It's no fun bein' an illegal alien

This story about Chinese tourists being sent back to China yesterday because they didn't have proper permits to enter Taiwan wouldn't have been so special if it hadn't been for the two groups of Chinese tourists without entry permits that were allowed entry last week.

A serious question to ask is how the hell any of these people were even allowed to board planes headed for Taiwan. Could it be yet another "test" of how far the Chinese can go in treating Taiwan as "domestic"?

Second thread
What do you think the cover story was on the two pro-blue newspapers I saw today? Take a look at what had no business being headlines:
* China Post: What's wrong with Wang?

* United Daily News (聯合報): 建仔3連敗 恐跳過先發
[Maddog translation: Wang Chien-ming loses 3 in a row, afraid he'll be benched]

Why is Wang on UDN's front page?
What does UDN want to distract you with today?

Well, at least they weren't writing about their favorite subject, former president Chen Shui-bian (陳水扁).
