When Worlds Collide...
Kemalist Democracy and the AKP

"Will the Turkish Military intervene in May or November this year, to remove the AKP Government from power?"
Before addressing that hot potato, consider the reasons behind the AKP's go-slow approach so far..."

When Worlds Collide...
Kemalist Democracy and the AKP

From our dear site-vistor Etty came a heartfelt comment, "Living in Turkey with my Turkish husband and being used to his political short-temper, I took with the usual 'pinch of salt' his recent assertions that a military coup is imminent. But reading your blog-article reminds me of his words -- and sends shivers down my spine..."

Jeanne Reeder's adventure novel,
"Complicated Favors: A Turkish Affair"

... Complicated Favors (CF) is not all 'blood and guts' action, though. Ms. Reeder's deft inclusion of Turkey's naturally lusty Romantic Ambiance (as a third, intangible main character) is also notable. That inclusion makes CF a thoroughly sexy (though never prurient) novel too -- as it follows the developing romance between heroine Charly and Hakan, her Turkish counterpart and mission-buddy. And, when American flesh meets Turkish flesh, well, let's just say that...sparks fly.

'Erotik' Movie History:
The Players -- Alev Altın

"I smoked Kent cigarettes back then, and one day someone on the movie set replaced the tobacco in my Kents with 'weed'. Oh oh... after that, you couldn't hold me back. I could barely see what I was doing, I was half blind. And when we got on the bed, drugged-up like that...we got up to every kind of mischief. Who was on top? Who was on the bottom? Whose 'şey' was in someone else's 'şey'? I'm not sure any of us knew, or cared."

'Erotik' Movie History:
The Players -- Alev Altın

Altin's early professional-life is reminiscent of American porn film star Traci Lords -- who made her first 'erotik' movie at the under-age of 16. But unlike Lords (whose mature good looks still attract attention in soft-porn action flics), Altin died young...

    Caught Between 2 Bad Choices (Part 1 of 2) --
    The Turkish Presidential Selection, May 2007

    In one scenario, the current Prime Minister (Recep Tayyip Erdoğan) would be selected by Parliament to take up residence as President of the Republic in the Turkish White House. His First-Lady, Emine Erdoğan, would thus become the first woman in history to publicly wear the religiously-symbolic Türban on the grounds of the Turkish Republic's state residence -- long believed to be a secular safe-house. And she would no doubt be followed by thousands of invited türbanlı friends and supporters...
