Reader feedback: Proud of US imperfection

Re: "Musings of a little insignificant Slovak girl," By Lívia Tóthová, Vol. 8 No. 26, July 8-14

I am an American, and my grandparents came here from Slovakia. I liked the article very much. She seems to be a good person to know. She sees some negative things and is able and willing to balance them with the positives. I am proud to be an imperfect American and to have my Slovak heritage.
