Reader feedback: The positive outlook

Re: Reflections on Slovakia, By Owen V Johnson, Apr 26 - May 2, Vol 10, No 16

Dear Prof Johnson, thank you very much for writing such an informative and credible article on Slovakia. Following so much negative publicity concerning Slovakia, it is very refreshing and encouraging to read an upbeat view of this small country's historical development. Good luck with your sabbatical and all the best.
