Reader feedback: How about Šťastný?

Re: Is the real Mr Mečiar standing in the shadows behind Mr Friendly?, Editorial, May 26 - June 1, Vol 9, No 20

I think Peter Šťastný should run for president.

There are few, if any, other Slovaks who have worked so hard and so single-mindedly to improve the standing and visibility of Slovakia in the international arena.

There are also few, if any, Slovaks who are as universally admired and respected as Šťastný.

I have no idea what his politics are, but he has clearly demonstrated his management abilities through Slovakia's growing collection of hockey hardware, and he is certainly a more sensible speaker than Schuster.
