A new day at the hildren’s Discovery Museum in Acton

You probably know the giant dinosaur, Bessie, out on the front lawn of the Discovery Museum in Acton, a new hat on her head each week. Since 1982, the Route 27 museum has been a go-to destination for families with young children — something to do to get out of the house.

The bill should be put aside until the promulgation of laws concerning the promotion of transitional justice, Wang said.

Minister of Culture Cheng Li-chiun (鄭麗君) made an emotional plea for urgent passage of the draft, citing the deaths of Tsui Hsiao-ping (崔小萍), Chen Meng-ho (陳孟和) and Su Yu-peng (蘇友鵬) this year, all of whom lived in the Martial Law era.
