What a Turkey!

Okay, there is something wrong in Turkey. I've explained before about writers being persecuted for insulting "Turkishness." Well, now it gets even better. Apparently there is a Kurdish rebel in jail, whose last name is Ocalan. A Kurdish politician recently referred to him as "Mr. Ocalan." For shame! How dare you call a rebel "Mr."! The politician was given 6 months in jail for that. And another 18 months for distributing political literature that was written in Kurdish, not Turkish. I'm not making this up, folks. Read it here.
