Michael Brea, Sarah Palin and Cookie Monster: Morning links to love

By Melissa Bell

Some news bubbling up today:

In disturbing news, Micheal Brea, an actor best known for his walk-on role in "Ugly Betty," was arrested for allegedly decapitating his mother with a sword while screaming bible verses. Needless to say, he's been taken to Kings County Hospital for a psychiatric exam.

There's no Chilean ending for the 29 miners caught in a New Zealand mine. A second massive explosion destroyed any hopes that the men caught in the mine five days ago could be rescued alive.

Oof. Here's a dash of happy "Sesame Street" news. Cookie Monster wants to host "Saturday Night Live":

While Bristol Palin was busy dancing up a storm, her mother's publisher HarperCollins was settling with Gawker over the Web site's posting of Sarah Palin's book excerpts.

In case you didn't catch it yesterday, read Monica Hesse's brilliant story about the man who invented digital cameras.

I cannot get enough of these animated speeches. Animator Andrew Park illustrates TED speaker Denis Dutton's theory of "What is Beauty?"
