Taiwan: Last Week Tonight with John Oliver

This is something share-worthy or even celebrate-worthy.

I was enthusiastic viewer of Last Week Tonight until I was stopped by compassion fatigue. After decades of exposure to late-night since Jon Stewart, I was looking for a break from having the news telling me what I should be angry about.

Yet, the issue of political status of Taiwan is surely something dear to me. I especially like the take-away — the place, the island, shouldn’t always just be mentioned in passing when talking about China; the people there deserve to decide their own future.

Something to make a note of.
