1. Writer David Foster Wallace found dead
2. Actor Paul Newman dies at 83
3. George Putnam, longtime L.A. newsman, dies at 94

4. Dave Freeman, 47, co-wrote '100 Things to Do Before You Die'
5. Sydney Pollack, 73; Oscar-winning director and producer


1. Sarah Palin's style: the issue at hand

3. Model Gerren Taylor's short but stunning fashion career seen in 'America the Beautiful'
4. Hypercolor is hot again
