    He has edited magazines on business and politics, technology, and wildlife. He has also published fiction and non-fiction books, most of them in Serbian. Though he has never pretended to be a reporter, his wide knowledge of politics (especially in America), combined with his experiences in a disintegrating Yugoslavia, gives him an unusual outlook on events in South Africa.

    Despite the vowel-poor surname, he tells anyone who asks that he hails from Hyde Park, Johannesburg, having spent most of his adult life in South Africa.

Speaking on US television just prior to the release of her book, "Going Rogue", Sarah Palin, the former Alaskan governor, Republican vice presidential candidate in 2008 and darling of the Republican right wing, sidestepped her future political plans to run for office, but admitted that "if people will have me, I will".  Palin appeared on "The Oprah Winfrey Show" on Monday and ABC released advance excerpts of their interview with Barbara Walters that will begin airing on newscasts on Tuesday. Palin rated Barack Obama's performance so far as 4 out of 10 both for his handling of the economy and "dithering" on national security. Palin said she'd received many offers in the past several months, including for a reality show. For more read the AP, ABC News and Oprah's own website.
