              "Clean-up in aisle 1!"

In Marmaris district of Muğla province, 90 year-old Hüseyin
Cemil Acartürk went to pay his telephone bill.  However, upon
learning that his debt was 700 TL (about 200 USD), he fainted.

Acartürk had come to Marmaris from his home 56 kilometers
away in Bozburun.  When he recovered from fainting over the
700 TL phone bill, he told the clerk "give me a bill for the talking
I did. I don't want anything else. I'm having a crisis right now! I
may die! I'm going to sue you!"

Fatma Nine'nin cami nöbeti son buldu
                  Paying her debt to society (!)...

In Soma district of Manisa province, the cane that Fatma Sazan (82)
used to intervene in a fight was considered a weapon by the court.
Consequently, her sentence of the monetary equivalent of  4 months in
jail was increased to 6 months.

At the trial, Fatma hanım's good behavior and demeanor reduced her
sentence to 5 months or 3,000 TL (about 750 USD).  Not having the
funds to pay the fine, Fatma hanım was assigned to guard (!) the local
İlim Işıktır Mosque, located 500 meters from her home in the Karamanlı
neighborhood, for 4 hours each day.

Once the local and national press heard about Fatma hanım's predicament,
though, the Soma district chief and mayor raised 480 TL to pay off the
remaining 10 days of Fatma hanım's sentence.  She was informed of her
freedom by the imam from the mosque, who paid a visit to her one-room
