Censorship

How can Istanbul feel so modern, serve great wine, embrace many cultures, and have its own Time Out … yet have a government-ordered block on YouTube?

To be fair, I discovered this while trying to access a video about LOST, not political commentary or social justice statements. But an interesting reminder that there’s more to life here than what’s on the surface.

    We forget just how much we take for granted the freedoms we have had since birth in our own country. Hopefully we will always have freedom from too much government control.
