British beer drinkers found a measure of good news amid a flood of economic downers: The fabled pint won't have to be renamed. After a long debate over whether the European Union would force pubs to serve beer by the half-liter, the European Parliament decided to let Britain retain the pint, the mile and other imperial measurements. The bill scraps a 2009 deadline to end the use of imperial measurements alongside metric units.

Take off your thinking cap and simply enjoy the mini-pleasures of "Antboy. " This fantastical story of 12-year-old Pelle (Oscar Dietz), who goes from zero to superhero after being bitten by a genetically modified ant, should delight kids and adults alike. The film - a Danish import that has been wisely, if not quite seamlessly, dubbed into English to accommodate younger viewers - starts with the unpopular Pelle considering himself more "invisible man" than nerd. (That latter distinction is saved for bespectacled comic-book fan Wilhelm, played by Samuel Ting Graf.)

The San Francisco Giants' Sergio Romo is probably best known for throwing the final pitch that helped the Giants win the 2012 World Series. But the Giants' closer is also earning a reputation for his political activism. At the team's victory parade, Romo sported a blue T-shirt that read “I just look illegal ” -- a cheeky comment on how the debate over immigration reform is all too often reduced to ethnic stereotypes. Now, Romo is reported to be joining forces with the Three Twins Ice Cream company to develop Sergio Romo's Mexican Chocolate.

Thank you for the delightful article by Jon Gardey on England, "Lifting a Pint to Ansty" (May 12). I had to write to say it's the first really accurate account of a visit to my country that I've read. Most "I was there" articles seem to have been taken straight out of a travel brochure, but this was a wonderfully evocative memory of an England that is my home. Every detail had been noticed with warmth and humor, and the photos captured the moments as they really are. I've been visiting Los Angeles and have enjoyed reading your paper very much.

Hollywood's Cat & Fiddle is the pub that rock 'n' roll built. Founded in 1982 by British expat Kim Gardner and his wife, Paula, the place has become the go-to British pub for musicians and those who love them. Kim -- a known wild man and bassist -- was part of the British Invasion of the 1960s and played with legends including George Harrison, the Rolling Stones and the Byrds. The pub has also become a second home for generations of pint-loving neighbors and devoted monarchists who come for the hearty British fare, gorgeous front patio and down-home vibe cultivated by the Gardner family over the years.

LONDON - It's Saturday afternoon in the jam-packed Old Red Lion on London's shopper-crowded St. John Street. Beer-fueled chatter - including some salty heckles - ricochets off the TV screens, while the pub's lone server pours pints of frothy ale in double-quick time. Local soccer team Arsenal is playing, and the game isn't going well. Nestled among the red-shirted lager lovers are several quiet imbibers, their tables topped with glasses of wine and the occasional well-thumbed paperback.

The names are bigger, the flow is smoother, but the voyeuristic aimlessness still prevails in indie stalwart Joe Swanberg's latest film, the breezily charming "Drinking Buddies. " The action - a term used loosely with regards to Swanberg ("Hannah Takes the Stairs," "LOL") - swirls around craft brewery coworkers Kate (Olivia Wilde) and Luke (Jake Johnson), cozy chums whose jokey, caring, pint-hoisting closeness has everything a relationship seemingly needs except deal-clinching carnality.

Re "Relax the Ban on Gay Blood Donors," Opinion, April 30: Douglas Starr's reliance upon "deferring gay men a year from their last homosexual contact" says more than I want to know even though "they'd be rigorously screened." Driving a vehicle is a privilege. If blood is needed, simply grant the privilege and renewal thereof dependent upon a pint of blood. Deferment for medical reasons can be made. If the driver needs deferment for religious reasons, the driver is never a blood recipient.

Seeking to reduce civilian casualties and collateral damage, the Pentagon will soon deploy a new generation of drones the size of model planes, packing tiny explosive warheads that can be delivered with pinpoint accuracy. Errant drone strikes have been blamed for killing and injuring scores of civilians throughout Pakistan and Afghanistan, giving the U.S. government a black eye as it targets elusive terrorist groups. The Predator and Reaper drones deployed in these regions typically carry 100-pound laser-guided Hellfire missiles or 500-pound GPS-guided smart bombs that can reduce buildings to smoldering rubble.

Valentine's Day shouldn't be followed by bitterness — unless, of course, you're visiting Santa Monica's Library Alehouse beginning Feb. 15. That's when the Westside's craft beer destination will launch its 11-day HopHead Heaven festival, which is specializing in hoppy beers. Things will be kept close to home on opening day, which the bar has dubbed "local bitterness" night, featuring India pale ales from nearby brewers such as Eagle Rock, Bootlegger, Smog City, Cismontane and Ladyface.
