Got two tales for ya. First, enjoy this uplifting story about Taiwanese golf sensation Yani Tseng, who, when offered a US$25 million sponsorship from a PRC businessman, refused because she'd have to change her citizenship.
The second is this tale packed with facts and pictures, of the wreck of the SS President Hoover off Green Island in 1937. President Hoover, the largest liner built in the US when it was launched in 1931, had just got done being mistakenly bombed in China by the Nationalist Air Force. On its way to the Philippines from Kobe, it hit a reef off Green Island... and the rest was history, as they say.
And one more Feelgood, totally without a Taiwan connection: how MLK persuaded NN to remain on ST:TOS as Lt. U. Totally will bring tears to your eyes.
Enjoy! Hope Typhoon Fanapi was as big a dud for you all as it was for those of us in central Taiwan; I had a pleasant bike ride in the cool, dark afternoon weather.
