Links: Odds and Ends

Here's a  Monday grab bag of the interesting, the odd, the funny, and stuff I can't find anyplace else for:
  • Hurriyet Daily News: "Turkey 'Acquitted' of 1915 Incidents in Malta."  (Hat tip to Abu Reyhan al-Biruni via Facebook.) I'm not making this up: Turkey's EU Minister says Ottoman officials were investigated by the British on Malta after World War I and werte "acquitted" of the Armenian Genocide (the latter two words in quotes of course in a Turkish paper), so that proves it didn't happen. Well, now that that's finally settled . . .
