Re: "Absence of democracy equals absence of shame", Letters, May 2.

A Johnsen's comments concerning "some of the regular, Western letter-writers" warmed my heart, and the appreciation doubled when he brought up one crucial and often-forgotten point - the absence of shame of this government.

His letter corrected my previously biased view that certain contributors to this column would have no chance of getting letters published in their home countries, not even in a provincial newspaper.
