Four suspects have been arrested after a bizarre, early-morning home invasion in Lincoln Heights on Saturday that ended with a resident tying up two of the armed men. The suspects, armed with a shotgun and three handguns, allegedly entered a house on the 2600 block of Alta Street in Lincoln Heights, said Officer Norma Eisenman of the Los Angeles Police Department. The resident, who was the only person home at the time, saw the suspects on a home surveillance system and called 911 about 2:40 a.m., she said.

When: 4:30 PST. Where: The Palace. On the air: TV: TWC SportsNet, TWC Deportes; Radio: 710, 1330. Records: Lakers 8-8; Pistons 6-9. Record vs. Pistons: 1-0. Update: The Pistons are a bizarre mix of players with some equally perplexing results (4-4 at home, with losses to Atlanta and a depleted Chicago team). They added free agents Brandon Jennings and Josh Smith but their leading scorer is a holdover, reserve guard Rodney Stuckey (16.6 points a game)

A bizarre act of revenge against a romantic rival was the unlikely genesis of an important debate in the Supreme Court last week about federal power, states' rights and the conduct of U.S. diplomacy. The justices were asked to overturn the conviction of Carol Anne Bond, an immigrant from Barbados who was convicted of trying to poison her best friend after she learned that the woman had been impregnated by Bond's husband. Bond stole a dangerous chemical from the laboratory where she worked and smeared it on the other woman's car door, mailbox and doorknobs.

High in the mountains of northeastern Australia, scientists have discovered three intriguing animals that are brand new to science, and you can see all three of them in the photo gallery above. They include the bizarre-looking leaf-tailed gecko ( Saltuarius eximius ) with its giant eyes and broad leaf-shaped tail; the golden shade skink ( Saproscincus saltus ), which resembles a short snake with legs; and an elegant little frog ( Cophixalus petrophilus ) that spends most of its life in the cool moist cracks between the black granite boulders strewn across the top of the mountain range.

Let's peel back the layers of L.A., the Big Onion - past the skin lotions, the spray tans, the unnecessary piercings, down so close that you can tickle this lovely city's soul. Wait, that's not a soul. That's another layer. Or maybe it's bulletproof long johns. I feel like Philip Marlowe sometimes. Just when I think I've found the essence of Los Angeles, I discover yet another veneer. A city without essence? Or pity. Keep peeling, pal. “This is what Rome was like just before it fell,” notes a Times photographer at this club.
