Reader feedback: Farewell

Re: "Leaving Slovakia: The things unsaid", By Tom Nicholson, Letter from the editor, Vol. 8 No. 38, Oct 7 to Oct 13

The Slovak Spectator tells me that you have departed it, in a mere three sentences! Is that enough?? Tom, you have introduced me to Slovakia, in a way, as if I myself walked in your shoes. Your journalism is accurate and objective, be it sometimes somewhat brief. It is a pity that a number of Slovaks haven't recognized your love for the country and its citizens. I thank you for the way you ran The Slovak Spectator; you have been a great help for me in understanding Slovakia. If you have some spare time, please respond to The Slovak Spectator site in the future. Via that route you will not be that far away! Thank you Tom!!

Best of luck with whatever you have planned for your future and that of your family!
