Responsibility? What a concept

"Taiwan's premier resigned Monday amid strong criticism of the government's slow response to the most devastating storm to hit the island in 50 years, and the president immediately named a senior official from the ruling party to replace him. Liu Chao-shiuan said he was leaving office because his Cabinet had completed the initial stage of rehabilitation work after Typhoon Morakot slammed into the island Aug. 8-9 and left an estimated 670 people dead. . . . Liu's move sets the stage for the entire Cabinet to resign. Liu said that would happen Thursday."

Imagine living in a country where the leaders take responsibility for their screw ups.
