   Greetings from Zadar, Croatia...Nets star Drazen Petrovic was one of the first foreign players in the NBA.  He died in a car crash a few years ago, and was recently added to the Basketball Hall of Fame.  He has a statue in Zagreb and I visit his home town tomorrow.
   The Pope blessed all the women of Croatia yesterday.  I don't know if this is good or bad for my chances.

BLING-BLING IN OED--This seems like old news, but it's on YAHOO! news today:

MASNICA--Shortbread, filled with onion, cheese, smoked ham or sweet cheese and raisins.  OED?
