Well, rather an okay Republican than a psychotic Liberal.

And with that, I would like to suggest <ahem> that we drop the politics and get back to Japanese.

Despite the politics and the bad blood, and i am deliberately ignoring american politics which have nothing to do with this site, (you yanks always seem to take over lol) there is a flip side, and i appoligise if someone has already said this. When Chinese academics want to study their own history, specifically linguistic history, they nearly always do so in Japan. As much of chinese/taiwanese records were lost during wars, etc. Japan (as with its historic links with china) still has written accounts of china's past, and specifically linguistic heritage.. I was suprised to here this from a fellow academic who is researching some abstract Taoist/language topic. quite interesting though.
