Thanks to the viral video of an attempted child abduction, a man is now under arrest and charged with attempted kidnapping and indecent assault. As the Los Angeles Times earlier reported, a man tried to abduct a 10-year-old girl off a south Philadelphia sidewalk on Tuesday as she was walking home from a nearby store with her 2-year-old brother. The incident was caught by a surveillance camera. The man approached the girl from behind and put his hand over her mouth, and then tried to cart her off. The girl's little brother screamed -- louder than his sister had ever heard him -- the Associated Press reported from a Thursday news conference. The girl credited her brother with stopping the attack.

This morning's #Weekendeats chat on Twitter got pretty fruity as people shared their photos and recipes of fruity desserts, drinks and snacks from over the weekend. Peaches and blueberries seemed to be favorites, making appearances in everything from salsa to pies. Here are some of the highlights: Daisy from the blog Daisy's World started things off with a kick with her boozy ice bellini pops and the blog Buttercream Blondie kept things shaking with peachy bourbon crumble cupcakes . Kristina of the blog Onblank made a simple fresh peach sauce to go with some waffles, and Emily Baker of the blog 'A Gilt Nutmeg' shared a beautiful white peach cream cheese tart . For the blueberry lovers, Carrie Fehr of the blog Kitchen Garden made blue corn blueberry pancakes . Diana Hossfeld of the blog Diana Takes a Bite shared a picture of her very first pie made with blueberries and peaches.

An artist in Kansas is claiming censorship over his unflattering depiction of Gov. Sam Brownback. David Loewenstein wrote on his personal blog that his print showing the politician as a demonic figure featuring the words "Reject Brownback" was taken down from a Topeka cafe. Brownback, a Republican, has also served as a U.S. representative and senator from Kansas. He was elected governor in 2010. Brownback received national attention last year when he eliminated the Kansas Arts Commission, making Kansas the first state to completely do away with arts funding. After intense pressure from arts advocates, Brownback somewhat reversed his decision by restoring some arts funding.

Call me flabbergasted. Deliberately destroy six entire vintages of a fabled wine, and the Italian justice system metes out a measly four-year sentence? Two less than the prosecutor requested, actually. Sentenced was Andrea Di Gisi, a former employee of Gianfranco Soldera of Case Basse , a top Montalcino estate in southern Tuscany. Fired by Soldera, Di Gisi's motive allegedly was revenge. By entering the cellar of Case Basse at night and opening the valves of casks so that the wine gushed out onto the cellar floor, he effectively stole six years' work from his former boss.
