Letter to the Editor

Dear Editor,

Just to let you know what one of your readers is like, I'm an American who used to live in Bratislava and work as an English teacher (in fact, I was privileged to teach one of The Slovak Spectator staff). I now live in America, and I am the pastor of a church in Colorado. I like to keep up on Slovak current events through The Slovak Spectator's Web page. Thanks so much for making your paper available to those of us in other parts of the world!

Owen Shattuck,
Greeley, Colorado
