Cave Cihan, Mr. Erdoğan!
Forget about what I have been posting yesterday.
Of course, Tayyip Erdoğan is the winner of election in Turkey.
Congratulations, Mr. Erdoğan.
I, me and myself do not have any doubt of your integrity.
My closest friend, though - a writer who would not write for reasons I shall probably never understand - just murmured: "He should not forget forget the mission of July 30th, 2003."
"Well", I said when watching the first photo he showed me from his REUTERS-archive, "not everybody on this planet is a horseman."
"For sure", Tetrapilotomos smiled, "and the photos , OF COURSE, would not have been published in Zaman."
"But why?" I asked. "It's not a shame to get in trouble with a horse."
"Hm, Turkish journalists know pretty well to use the scissors in their mind (brain)."
"Actually, Tetrapilotomos, I think some Turkish journalists are very brave. Much more brave, indeed, than I'd be."
"Well, Sean, it's not because of the horse alone. It's because of the horse's name."
"C'mon, Tetrapilotomos, what was or is the horse's name?!"
"Indeed, it does. But would you like to be unhorsed by the 'World'?"
