Supreme Court to hear Windsor man’s “fly phobia” case. Waddah Mustapha found a fly in his bottled water in 2001, and claims to have suffered immense mental damage and a phobia of flies as a result.

Waterfront dwellers don’t like Porter Airlines. In other news: fire hot, water wet, Pope still a Catholic bear shitting in woods.
