Letter to the Editor: Claudia helped in the end

Dear Sir,

Thank you for the real story on the expensive famous people who came to enhance Mečiar's campaign. Nobody will believe that their salaries were not paid by our state. Mečiar actually did us a service by having them here, and maybe the cost was, after all, worth it. It helped get rid of an inadequate leader who had the gift of fooling a lot of uneducated people for a very long time. But at last, not even Claudia Schiffer could fool those of us who need money for schools and hospitals.

Anne Matheson, Malacky, Slovakia
