Reader feedback: Dear Don

Re: "Fico: We had university while US overrun by buffalo and Indians," News Briefs, Vol. 8 No. 36, September 23-29

The most important reason that Fico is out of the government picture today is that Anna Malíková did not agree with Ján Slota to unite [the far-right opposition parties] SNS and PSNS.

If she was not so stupid, then today the following would have happened:

1. The united SNS would have had 12 seats.

2. The coalition that is so dear to you would have had 72 seats (four short of a majority). Therefore, they would have been LOSERS today.

3. The four parties, the so called winners of the elections, would have been kneeling in front of Robert Fico or Malíková inviting them to join the coalition because they would have been losers without them.
