This is an edited excerpt of a Chicago Tribune editorial, which was published Monday. A TURKISH appeals court last week upheld the death sentence given to Kurdish separatist leader Abdullah Ocalan. For Turkey, the timing couldn't be worse. Turkey wants admission into the European Union, whose members all oppose the death penalty. The EU is expected to select Turkey as a candidate for membership when the organization meets in Helsinki this month. But the EU has bluntly warned that if Ocalan is executed, Turkey's chances for membership could be stifled.

The gathering scheduled to be held today in Istanbul was seen as a first and important step in this nation's efforts to confront its troubled past as it seeks membership of the European Union.

Turkish-American relations are in crisis. But the House resolution declaring the World War I-era killings of Armenians a genocide is only one cause - and that's just a sideshow. Turkish-American relations have been deteriorating for years, and the root explanation is simple and harsh: Washington's policies are broadly and fundamentally incompatible with Turkish foreign policy interests in multiple arenas. No amount of diplomat-speak can conceal or change that reality. Count the ways: Kurds.

When Turkey's Parliament failed to pass a resolution Saturday authorizing U.S. troops to deploy there for an attack against Iraq, the refusal was reported as a shocking blow to the United States, which was counting on a foothold in Turkey to launch a northern front against Saddam Hussein. The United States had offered Turkey $15 billion in grants and loans for the privilege. While reporting in the United States emphasized the effect on plans for war, Turkish newspapers were caught up in the domestic implications.

Here I sit all fattened up from Thanksgiving and spilling over with lots of stuff, some of it passing for wisdom.I can hardly contain myself, especially in my old jeans. So I am compelled to show off what I recently picked up at the dinner table.First of all, I have determined that a good indicator of when to stop eating turkey is when the gravy runs out. This cut-off point may fall after the turkey-sandwich sessions, or even after the turkey tetrazzini supper. But once the gravy is gone, about the only members of the household still genuinely willing to attack the carcass are the pets.

ISTANBUL, Turkey -- Some things have changed as Turkey has moved from Third World country to the makings of a powerful industrial economy, banging on the gates of Europe as surely as did the armies of the Ottomans 300 years ago.The last time I was here you'd sit in a restaurant by the Bosporus and as you finished them off you'd throw your empty wine bottles out the open window into the fast-moving current. Things are tidier now.Tidier, too, is the child-labor situation. There are health and welfare safeguards that did not exist on my last visit.
