Re: Named and Shamed, By Beáta Balogová, Sept 2-7, Vol 9, No 33
As we in the USA have learned from our presidents (notably Nixon and Reagan), "enemies of the state" simply means a list of public people who disagree with the president on this or that issue. The names on the list change from president to president, or in this case, from prime minister to prime minister. The fact that in Slovakia, the same names may appear on "enemies lists" from politicians as divergent as Dzurinda and Mečiar, suggests they must be doing something right. One should be proud to find his or her name on that kind of list.
