Diplomacy is the art of tact. Sir Winston Churchill once said: "Diplomacy is the art of telling people to go to hell in such a way that they ask for directions."
 
Lady Justice may be blind but she becomes ridiculous sometimes in Taiwan, perhaps because there are quite a number of baby prosecutors and dinosaur judges.
 
U.S. President Donald Trump gave his Taiwanese counterpart Tsai Ing-wen a slap in the face on Thursday. It was a shrewd and cold snub, and one that Tsai asked for.
 
One thing President Ma Ying-jeou dared not do while Sunflower student protesters occupied the chamber of the Legislative Yuan in 2014, his successor Tsai Ing-wen did last Wednesday.
 
Lady Justice is an allegorical personification of the moral force in judicial systems. Her attributes are a blindfold, a balance, and a sword.

Everybody in Taiwan knows who Chiang Wei-shui (蔣渭水) is. A 12.9-kilometer freeway tunnel passing under Snow Mountain (雪山) linking Taipei and Yilan in Northern Taiwan was opened in 2006. It is named Chiang Wei-shui Freeway.
 
President Tsai Ing-wen is almost elated by a scheduled change of the quasi-official Association of East Asian Relations (AEAR, 亞東關係協會) that facilitates "quasi-official relations" between Taiwan and Japan.
