Reader feedback: Taking a closer look

Eric, I totally agree ("Reader feedback: Your piece an advocacy of bribery", by Eric M. Roberts, Vol.8, No.19, May 20-26, 2002). Having read the article in question ("Mayday: Corruption thrives in post Communist Slovakia", By Tom Nicholson, Vol.8, No.17, May 6-12), I was aghast at its sheer hypocrisy and amazed at the bastard logic that could incorporate into it the current situation in the Middle East.

If Mr. Nicholson fails to see the hypocrisy of both his words and deeds, then he clearly needs to take a close look at both his personal and professional self.

A very poor article indeed.
