Reader feedback: Good news, finally

Re: US Ambassador Weiser leaving Slovakia, Volume 10, Number 48, December 13 - December 19

At the end of this article on Ambassador Weiser, I heard some good news that I have been waiting for these many months. He mentioned that visas would be lifted by next year (2005) for Slovak citizens wanting to visit America. Let's hope this was not just his personal opinion. Finally good news, indeed.
