Dear Paula,

In reading some of the reports on Richard Gere's visit to the refugee camps, I noticed an amusing fact--nobody knew who he was. In fact, one of the accounts of Tony Blair's trip also pointed out that most people thought he was an American statesmen (which he might as well be). Gwyneth Paltrow might be in for a similar surprise. I guess not too many Kosovar Albanians have seen Shakespeare in Love.

Fareed Zakaria, Slate's wine columnist, is also managing editor of Foreign Affairs and a contributing editor of Newsweek. Paula Throckmorton Zakaria designs jewelry and writes occassionally for the Wall Street Journal and other publications. She was president and publisher of The Black Book, a photography journal and sourcebook based in New York.
