Reader feedback: Never a dull moment

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

Just wanted to say good luck to Tom and his family in his new career. I taught in Slovakia from 1995 to 2000 and often The Slovak Spectator was my only foothold into the chaotic world of Slovak politics - it's never dull, is it? There have been some great columns written by him. Dovidenia!
