    but not sure if you were in communication with others on the ground in Istanbul, or that you may have felt intruded upon by doing so.

    When I looked at my friends' Facebook posts last night, there seemed an urgency about it in Turkish that I could intuit, but not understand. So I went to Al-Jazeera, which ran the "government sponsored" story.

    As my friends said, the police presence and protest was for show. And clumsy at that.
