Reader feedback: Empty words

Re: "Autonomy" trips response, Volume 11, Number 3, January 24-January 30, 2005

I'm mildly amused that the Socialist Prime Minister Gyurcsány is all of a sudden being viewed as the potential Great Revisionist. Don't get me wrong, I certainly understand Slovak sensitivity on the subject, but it seems they're a trifle too touchy at times. He's pandering to the Hungarian Right, folks, and his politics is empty speech and little else. No need for a fuss.
