Reader feedback: In praise of Lívia

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

A very and insightful essay, Livia. Did you know that there ain't no irrelevant American girls? The contradictions and doubts of a sanitized (no pig carcasses, please!) world do not enter their thoughts. Maybe that's why they insist on being relevant.
