A post from yesterday about Unabridged fave Orhan Pamuk. You may recall back in 2005 the Turkish government charing Pamuk for one crime or another for acknowledging the Armenian genocide as historical fact.
Well now Turkey is just like America! Yay? No. Bad. The Turkish supreme court ruled citizens can sue Mr. Pamuk for money and what not. This from MOBYLIVES: “Turkey’s Supreme Court has ruled that a group of six citizens offended by Pamuk’s comments can nonetheless sue him for compensation.”
Meanwhile in America … Newt Gingrich and his lawyers sent a Twitter user a cease and desist letter because they don’t like him clogging up his Titterz. He needs his lolz, people!
