Maybe it's something in the rarefied air or the famed Rocky Mountain water, but activist Jeff Peckman managed to gather the nearly 4,000 valid signatures to have Denver voters consider his plan for an Extraterrestrial Affairs Commission, the Los Angeles Times reported.

Its seven members would include an expert in taking testimony from people who've survived "direct personal close encounters" with aliens, the paper reported.
And in what has to be good news for space cadets beyond the city limits, the initiative says, "Members who are not Denver residents may participate from anywhere in the universe," the L.A. Times said.

Brown also wondered whether Colorado should float such an oddball plan so soon after the "Balloon Boy" hoax that was hatched in Fort Collins.

The Libs have fallen off the edge.
