Regarding the Opinion page article "Slovakia Declares Its - Identity?," July 21: The author is identified as an assistant United States attorney from Los Angeles who has been working as a US legal consultant in Bratislava for five months.
What is right for Slovakia is certainly not within this author's purview, nor any outsider's.
That has to be a decision that falls squarely on the shoulders of the 5 million residents of Slovakia. Hopefully, the Slovaks will make the right decision for themselves. Joseph Stipkala, Upper Marlboro, Md.
