On Aug. 28th I posted here about the banning of the practice of hiring strippers for funerals. Although today's posting is not really about Chinese law, readers of the original post might be interested to know that this practice is far from aberrational, and has been a well-known (although by no means universal) custom in Taiwan for years. For an erudite on-line discussion compiled from the archives of the H-ASIA listserv and other sources, click here. I have never heard of it in mainland China, however; perhaps this custom is a recent Taiwanese import.
