I Flunked Geography

Whilst having sushi with my Unit, she mentioned a protest she had read about -- somewhere, in another country, people protesting over the building of a shopping mall in the ONE remaining park the place had.  "It's in Istanbul, I think," she said.

Fast-forward to the next morning, she shouts from the next room:  "Yep, it's Istanbul!  Where is Istanbul?"
Me:  "I don't know, but it was once Constantinople."
Her:  "Very funny."
Me:  "I've been waiting since last night to use that joke."

FYI, Istanbul is in Turkey.  And on a more serious note, here is the protest that is happening. You should read it.
