Taiwan Quick Take: Chen's son graduates, again

President Chen Shui-bian's (陳水扁) son, Chen Chih-chung (陳致中), obtained yet another master's degree in law on Saturday when he graduated from New York University (NYU) School of Law. Chen Chih-chung earned a master's degree in law from the University of California, Berkeley last summer, and his mother -- first lady Wu Shu-jen (吳淑珍) -- traveled to the US to attend his graduation ceremony. Like his father, Chen Chih-chung also graduated from National Taiwan University's department of law. He married a pianist last June and his wife, Huang Jui-ching (黃睿靚), will graduate from Manhattan School of Music on Thursday. Media reports said President Chen originally planned to make a transit stop in New York en route to Paraguay early this month so that he could congratulate his son on the completion of the master's program at NYU. However, the plan did not materialize because the US government didn't approve his New York stopover.
