Robert Plant and Alison Krauss, "Raising Sand" (Rounder). The roaring mouthpiece of hard rock meets the heavenly voice of bluegrass somewhere between the craggy hollers of Appalachia and the forest depths of time immemorial. Mary Gauthier, "Between Daylight and Dark" (Lost Highway). It matters not whether this singer-songwriter's often harrowing tales relate real-life situations or people -- the emotions they elicit are as genuine as humanly possible.

A decade after the Internet's Big Bang, the online cosmos is expanding as fast as ever. Much more so than a year ago, we can now download or stream many of our favorite movies, most of the TV shows we didn't TiVo, and just about any song you want (Music lovers: I'm exaggerating for effect. Thanks). Larger, higher-resolution online video players are emerging. It won't be long before we think back bemusedly on how many clips we watched on that fuzzy miniature YouTube screen. Remember?

Federal safety regulators have opened an investigation into steering problems with the Saturn Ion. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration said it has received 633 complaints alleging sudden loss of power assist to the steering in Saturn Ion vehicles from the 2004-2007 model years. About a third of the complaints to NHTSA were filed in the last six months. The cars were manufactured and sold by General Motors Co. but the automaker scuttled the brand and closed its operations last year as part of its bankruptcy reorganization.

A man who escaped a Florida prison in 1977 only to be recaptured three decades later in the Inland Empire is now suspected of killing at least four women in Southern California during his years on the run. Larry D. Hubbard was arrested by Ontario police on an outstanding Florida escape warrant in May 2007, and died following an attempted suicide after he was returned to Florida. But Los Angeles cold case homicide detectives say they have now linked Hubbard through DNA testing and other evidence to the slayings of four women, each found strangled and abandoned in open fields.

A physician, a pharmacist and 15 others have been charged with bilking Medicare and Medi-Cal out of millions of dollars in an elaborate prescription drug fraud that resulted in the government paying over and over for the same pills. Using stolen or illegally obtained Medicare beneficiary cards, members of the ring known as "runners" would obtain prescriptions for expensive drugs from Kenneth Wayne Johnson, a Glendale physician, according to a criminal complaint unsealed Thursday in U.S. District Court in Los Angeles.
