I’ve been very quiet on this blog for the last few weeks, and there is a good reason. I’ve been a loyal Texas Rangers fan since about 1980, and most of those 30 years have been marked by mediocrity, hopelessness, and character-building lessons. In case you don’t follow American baseball, the Rangers are having the most successful season in their unremarkable history, and I’m diligently watching. This takes a lot of time (and sleep) out of my schedule, so I haven’t had much extra time for this blog. In Boston, they say that the election season doesn’t start in earnest until the Red Sox are eliminated. I guess that’s true for me and Taiwanese elections too (though I never had the opportunity to find out until this year). So I’ll be back in a couple of weeks.
(And yes, it makes me deliriously happy that the Rangers eliminated the Chunghua Yankees and that A-Rod was the final out.)
