"Diplomacy really is a literary art, apparently".

Literary-legal-psychological=intellectual?  That clause, btw, was a truly masterful example of intelligent "hot-potato management" in terms of elegantly phrased, carefully balanced procrastination - giving procrastination its due as an often very useful tool in the diplomatic toolkit, especially when skillfully wielded.

Most impressed!
