Letter to the Editor: Outraged by Bratislava-centrism

Dear Editor,

I obtained a copr of The Slovak Spectator at the Hotel Junior in Bratislava, and I was pleased by your high quality and objective content. I just have one quibble: What right do you have to the name "Slovak Spectator" when according to your page 7 [Culture content] you should be calling yourselves the "Bratislava Spectator"? As a simple illustration, look at your 'Venues' section, where you write the street addresses of bars and pubs without attaching the name of the city where they can be found.
As an inhabitant of the most beautiful Slovak city - Košice - I'm outraged. I wish you great success, more modesty and less Bratislava-centrism.

Ervin Matrirko
