Tidbits from Overseas


Two odd international items.

In Turkey, an 800-year old caravan pit stop is being converted into a shopping center.

And in the United Kingdom, a new proposal from the nation's Home Office (it's version of the Department of Homeland Security), calls for small jail cells to be built at shopping centers, among other items.

The new short-term holding facility located in shopping centres or town centres would feature basic cells which could be smaller than standard police station cells.

Suspects would be rapidly processed with their identities checked and fingerprints and DNA samples taken, and then released with an instant fine, or a court summons sent later by post.
