Writing is on the wall for Shen          
In fact, from Shen's repeated failure to obtain high office, we can see that the DPP mainstream now regards him as an untrustworthy traitor.
 
 
Resist the black hand of Beijing          
The whole world realizes that our neighbor is a bully threatening us with instruments of state terrorism, such as its ballistic missiles, while reaching its hands into every corner of Taiwan's society. How can the public not wake up and have a clear sense of friend and foe?
 
 
Corrupt politicians have got to go          
It is time to reform and clean up the culture of corruption left over from the old KMT government. The DPP government should take this opportunity to get rid of politically appointed officials with a poor track record of integrity, lest they continue to embarrass the Chen administration.
 
 
Lessons from the Kaohsiung poll          
The outcome of the Kaohsiung City Council by-election represents a good start for the DPP administration's second term, and it is probable it will influence the year-end legislative elections. A legislature where the governing party holds a minority is undoubtedly the greatest obstacle to an efficient government. We have already endured four years of this scenario, where passing legislation was nearly impossible.
 
 
South Korea provides good lessons          
At the same time, the South Korean parliament's preposterous use of "violence by the majority" to impeach Roh may serve as a very good lesson for Taiwan -- a reformist government must have the support of parliament to be successful. An opposition-dominated parliament will only become the accomplice of anti-reformists. In the light of Roh's treatment, how could we not seek to reform Taiwan's vicious legislature?
 
 
Ethnic grudges tie up resources          
Taiwan has often been criticized as "an affluent but uncivilized society." The people here may have money, but they lack good manners. Nor do they do things the way civilized people do. Aside from the few intellectuals who are capable of introspective criticism, most people do not realize what Taiwan's problems are. So even the lawmakers continue to use retaliatory mentality and even carry on with the most primitive type of brutal jungle combat. This is a phenomenon that ought to be a source of great shame for Taiwanese.
 
 
Taiwan can help quell N Korea          
In the past decade, the repetition of the tense military melodrama proves that containment does not work with North Korea. When all the keys in the hands of the UN-member countries couldn't open the door of peace on the Korean Peninsula, why not try a new key -- Taiwan?
 
 
Listening to and serving the people          
Chen should remember that public opinion surveys have repeatedly shown opposition to the government's decision to further ease restrictions against China, open direct links, or allow the move of 8-inch wafer foundries. We call on the government not to be as short-sighted as some businesspeople, nor sacrifice the interests of this nation and her people.
 
 
China bites a hand holding treats          
Irrespective of what the real motive for making the report may have been, it would be outlandish for the PLA to use this report to brainwash its entry-level military officers and thereby build a consensus for Chinese unification in 8 years. At that time, China will be facing a post-Olympic-Games economic upheaval. With its hands full, how can it possibly unify with Taiwan?
 
 
Bidding farewell to a lame horse          
The Year of the Horse is ending. Hopefully, the Year of the Goat will tame the chaos and turmoil, allow society to gain some peace and harmony and help the government to work to improve the economy. Only by revitalizing the economy can the government regain the people's faith and their support for its reform efforts. Only by revitalizing its economy can Taiwan ensure its future.
