BBC NEWS | World | Europe | Tour diary: Bush in Europe: "The Bush speech was a bit limp - not because of the President, who I thought looked less tired and more engaged now that he's away from the suits at the EU - but because most Slovaks speak no English."

That may be broadly true - but in Bratislava, and a select crowd specifically interested in hearing the President? What this guy doesn't know is that Czechs and Slovaks are a bit reticent about punching the air and don't go in for the woo-hoos that Americans often use to signify comprehension.
