Letter to the Editor: Shocked by violence

Dear Editor,

I would like to express my surprise at yet another outburst of violence in an otherwise wonderful city - the shooting that took place at the Dubliner's bar in Bratislava.

I live here in the UK with my Slovak wife, Maria Mišiková (now Wilson). I believe that her village - Ivanka pri Dunaji - has just celebrated its 750th birthday. I would like to wish all in Ivanka, especially my family, the best of life and happiness.

I would also like to pass on to you my congratulations for producing a Net Paper that is both informative and well produced. My wife and I read every week.

Philip Wilson,
Hampshire, UK
