Much respect is due to Erik Best and his team at the Fleet Sheet, for putting out the Final Word, a daily e-mailed commentary on a single Czech news item. I look forward to its insight every morning, and you should too. Best – along with Sabrina Slonkova and Hana Lesenarova at MF Dnes – has been one of the few writers in Prague willing to make powerful enemies, and it’s safe to say that his line on Czech politics is very close to that of “the business community” (read as: “the expat business community”).

While the Fleet Sheet is a faxed news summary in English (and kinda pricey), Best sends the Final Word out for free (registration is required). How’s that for an endorsement?
