They Didn't Get Her.

This story in the Taipei Times yesterday compelled my attention:
"Chu Feng, a native of Dapu Bourough (大埔), Jhunan Township (竹南), Miaoli County, was found dead on a chair on the porch of her house after swallowing a bottle of insecticide without leaving a suicide note behind on the morning of Aug. 3."
Human beings are not born to be creatures that serve a collective hive - these depraved bi-pedal insects may have stolen her land, but Chu Feng Min made sure they did not take her soul. I will think of her tomorrow when the ocean envelopes me for my morning swim in defiance of Tainan City Government ordinance.
