Reader feedback: Chuck the Czechs

Re: Young Czechs and Slovaks skilled in languages, Flash news briefs, June 14 - 20, Vol 10, No 22

Shouldn't the title of this article begin "Young Slovaks and Czechs"? This is a paper about Slovakia and Slovaks after all. In fact, there is no need to mention Czechs at all. This may look silly, but you have to take into account the historical relationship of Slovaks and Czechs. From 1918 until the 1990s it was always "Czech-Slovak" so now, after independence, it is really time for Slovaks to think differently and show more confidence.
