introductory epistle
Smugly Ahead

I hate telling people, “I told you so.” No, I lie. On certain occasions, I don’t mind it at all, which means that, at the peril of sounding smug...didn’t we predict that the protests would lose their momentum and slowly wane at the first sight of Spring sunshine?
We may have lost an hour a few days ago, but the crowd has lost thousands. Only a couple hundred people marched through the city of Zagreb last Saturday. The nation’s taken a breather and we’ve been afforded one, especially as far as this topic is concerned. Or have we?
It depends on how one looks at it. For different reasons entirely, other Croats – in Bosnia this time – seem to have picked up where we have left off. Not having the habit of strangling the cat before its due season, I’ll leave the details for the feature piece. Let us sing in communion (Easter is fast approaching, isn’t it?), paraphrasing Shakespeare: “This is the Spring of our discontent.”
Actually, it is not. We are, first and foremost, a business newspaper, and what with the Agrokor-Mercator jabs and ripostes, what with the HANFA suspending the trading of INA’s shares, what with the 2010 Corruption Index finally coming out and the land-mark Brown Forum about to take place in Dubrovnik, there has been no shortage of relevant business goings-on either to be covered or announced. Not to forget, too, that the upcoming verdict in the trial of the three Croatian generals at the International Criminal Tribunal in The Hague might have an impact on the index of the Zagreb Stock Exchange. Stranger things have been known to happen.
As concerns our general standing at CR, the careful reader will soon have noticed that there are a few more pages of advertising than usual, for which, knowing I will sound smug, I will not apologise. Smug or not, I will also voice a mild dose of disbelief at the Government’s announcement that the date for the next parliamentary election will be set immediately following the completion of Croatia’s EU negotiations in June. The month of June is not as close as we think; even still, I will go so far as to voice a mild dose of disbelief that Croatia will complete its negotiations in June. Which means nothing other than declaring a smattering of general scepticism.
Who was it that said that a clever man never believes what he is told by the authorities, especially when it’s true? (Or I might have made that one up.) In any event, I too seem to have caught the Spring fever. Off I go to string my rackets, play a game of tennis and sit in the sun. High time to start working on my tan. Now, who can protest against that?
Until next time...

O časopisu:

     Croatia: a Fortnight in Review (CR)  is the first publication of its kind in Croatia: a twice monthly national English language newspaper for all those seeking high-level analysis of contemporary business, legal, political and cultural affairs and events in Croatia.  The editorial office is well-rounded and, of course, international, and draws on the extensive experience of a composite of full-time professionals and outsourced experts.
     News in all its insightful and banal forms is everywhere nowadays, but no newspaper should be solely about the news; the task of every self-respecting broadsheet is to provide and create meaningful context.  This, simply, is our mission.
