Lots more at Reuters

Democratic U.S. presidential hopeful Dennis Kucinich may have been ridiculed for saying he had seen a UFO, but for some former military pilots and other observers, unidentified flying objects are no laughing matter.

An international panel of two dozen former pilots and government officials called on the U.S. government on Monday to reopen its generation-old UFO investigation as a matter of safety and security given continuing reports about flying discs, glowing spheres and other strange sightings.

Judge honored for sticking up for goldfish

People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals [have] commended Judge Helen O’Sullivan for her comments during the burglary trial last month of Shane Robert Stevenson, from Russell Island.

Twenty-year-old Stevenson was labelled “sick” for ripping the woman’s phone from the wall, stealing a PlayStation game console and flushing her two goldfish down the toilet. At the time barrister Philip Curbishley said Stevenson, an unemployed former meat worker, had probably ransacked the home in search of cash but could provide no firm explanation for his behaviour other than that he was alcoholic.

“He’s also an unattractive human being,” Judge O’Sullivan said during sentencing. “Some may find that humorous,” she said of the fishes’ untimely death. “I don’t. I find it a bit sick and obviously distressing to the owners.”
