I saw a question asking about the quotes from Le Petit Prince, so I read the entire book written in English (in a few hours) with French version on the side.  It is an interesting story.  There are so many things that the author was trying to tell us.  I didn't expect the ending and was a little saddened.

 

This is a compilation from my reading.  The Chinese translation is based upon my translation of the English version of Le Petit Prince.

About American Economy

 

I feel the urge to write about the current American economy, not that I have a degree in Economics, but that I am in the financial industry, facing an impact that I can no longer ignore.

2008 America ’s presidential election is finally over.  The result was kind of what we had expected.  The American people are tired of Bush, a Republican president, as a president for 8 years and are looking for changes. 

 

My son's school has "kids vote".  Of course, the votes do not count because they are not of voting age yet.  I kind of know the reason why my son voted "Obama" not because of us.  We don't discuss that with kids.  We voted for McCain for the long standing support that Republicans have shown towards Taiwan , for foreign policy and economic reasons.
