John Chang with son Wayne
John Chang (now known as Chiang), former foreign minister and current senator in Taiwan, with his son Wayne. The younger Chiang, who just graduated from Penn Law School, has not ruled out joining the family business: politics
I dont know if it will help my fathers political career to have the name Chiang. He says that its just a fact that we should accept, says Wayne. He cites a Mandarin proverb: mng zhng yn shn. It translates roughly to, With the correct name comes propriety.

Does this name change mean a continuation of the familys political legacy? Wayne says that hes leaving the option open. In the end, not even he can predict where the Chiang name will lead him.
