Reader feedback: Czech, Slovak; no difference

Re: Chuck the Czechs, Reader feedback, June 28 - July 4, Vol 10, No 25

Who cares [if the title of an article in The Slovak Spectator about a poll of several EU countries refers to "Czechs and Slovaks", "Slovaks and Czecks", or just "Slovaks"]? I've always lived in Czecho-slovakia. I am a Slovak, but for me there is no difference between a Czech and a Slovak.

I still regard Czechs as countrymen. No one asked the population what they wanted. Had there been a referendum, Czecho-slovakia would still be one country. At least this historical mistake has been rectified by both places joining the EU.
