- Hitler remark: Will it hurt Hillary Clinton?
Will the Hitler remark made by Hillary Rodham Clinton rebound against her? That’s what some Republicans are saying in the wake of Clinton’s comparing Vladimir Putin the architect of the Third Reich. It’s that the 2016 Democratic presidential frontrunner was at the center of the Obama administration’s attempt to “reset” US-Russia relations when she was secretary of State. If Putin’s Hitler, why try to make friends?

- As scientists watch, distant asteroid disintegrates
By Will Dunham WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Patsy Cline's classic country song "I Fall to Pieces," has nothing on this one. The rocky asteroid, named P/2013 R3, was one of the innumerable objects populating the crowded asteroid belt located between the orbits of Mars and Jupiter, roughly three times further away from the sun than Earth. This time, however, scientists first noticed the dramatic events using ground-based telescopes in Arizona and Hawaii and then got a better look using the orbiting Hubble Space Telescope. "After looking at the asteroid belt for a couple of hundred years - the first one was discovered in 1801 - to find a new thing like this is really exciting," David Jewitt, a UCLA astronomer who led the research, said in a telephone interview.

- 'Upskirting' is legal, Massachusetts top court says
A man who snapped secret pictures up women's skirts on a Boston subway train - a practice known as upskirting - did not violate the state's Peeping Tom law, Massachusetts' top court said on Wednesday, pointing to a loophole in current legislation. Massachusetts law prohibits secretly filming or photographing a person who is nude or partly nude, but that does not apply to people who are fully clothed, according to a Supreme Judicial Court decision written by Justice Margot Botsford. The ruling comes in the case of a man who was arrested by transit police in 2010 for using his cell phone to take pictures and video up women's' skirts on the subway and who fought to have the charges of voyeurism dismissed. The court said that, while women have a "reasonable expectation of privacy in not having a stranger take photographs up her skirt" the law "in its current form does not address it." A legal expert took the ruling as a cue for the state legislature to bolster the Peeping Tom law.
