I would say Friedman, like others in his field, has ALSO LEFT A DEEP (AND DESTRUCTIVE) "SLAV" MARK "on the entire Macedonian nation and global Macedonian community" (as well as the international academic world) and that needs to be corrected or you would only be reinforcing that NEGATIVE ASPECT (which, IMO, is very significant) of his distorted Macedonian historical and ethno-genetic view as seen via his "Slav"-coloured lenses.

Nimmetz is not going to listen to an organization like umd.He has been put there to work on the macedonians to compromise their name & capitulate.I wonder what they actually said.
There's no way that nimmetz would stop the name negotitions that's why he wasput there.

Meto, what about Dragan of Ohrid? Will you be providing a posthumous award for him?

I can't imagine that confused Bulgarophile will be attending any Diaspora functions. But if the UMD is inviting Gligorov (Strange not to see Wills & Kate getting an invite btw) then anything goes I suppose.

Well, I see this as the make or break it conference year. Toronto, was a disappointment with 200,000 ethnic Macedonians in the GTA and UMD managed to attract roughly 1,000 people .. average age 50 during 3 days. Anything less then 1,000 in Washington DC will be considered another financial setback.

Not, long ago Melbourne managed to get 30,000 Macedonians to attend a half day event for free.

Why would you even invite a Macedonian dusman like Gligorov? Maybe, George Soros next year for the Goce Delcev award?
