Good job

It's rare that I say something nice about the Taipei Times -- actually, it's rare that anyone says something nice about the Taipei Times -- but I have to admit that they've been all over the Thai worker story in Kaohsiung. Especially yesterday. I wish I'd brought it up then.

I'm not sure that every article they've produced on the subject has been stellar journalism. But if English-language journalism can make a meaningful contribution in Taiwan, it's on stories like this.

While I'm on the subject, I've never seen a Taipei Times article as critical of the DPP as this one.
