Brian Austin Green pokes at a bowl of chicken and rice soup at the 101 Coffee Shop in Hollywood. The 39-year-old actor has a cold that he doesn't want to pass on to his 6-week-old baby son, Noah. "I'm too old for this sleeping three or four hours a night thing," says Green of having a newborn in his life. Noah is his son with wife Megan Fox, but Green also has a 9-year-old son with former girlfriend Vanessa Marcil. These days Green, who admits that he was quite the party guy in the past, says his priorities are to take it easy and to care for his family.

Science, which is confusing to many people — some to the point that they regard it as a form of superstition — has always needed its champions, its spokespersons, its interpreters, big brains who also function efficiently as celebrities and have a knack for taking impossible-sounding theories and making them sound, at least for the moment they're speaking, comprehensible. Here comes Brian Greene, again. (He is TV's favorite theoretical physicist.) Like Carl Sagan and Stephen Hawking before him, Greene — whose "The Fabric of the Cosmos" begins a four-week run Wednesday in the framework of the PBS series "Nova" — is both mediagenic and a working scientist.

The roster of young celebrities allegedly victimized by the so-called bling ring expanded Wednesday as Los Angeles police detectives said the group targeted Brian Austin Green, Ashley Tisdale and Megan Fox as part of a string of at least 10 burglaries in the Hollywood Hills. So far, at least eight celebrities -- including Paris Hilton, Audrina Patridge, Lindsay Lohan, Rachel Bilson and Orlando Bloom -- have allegedly had property stolen by the gang that police said was made up primarily of teenage girls, most of whom attended the same continuation school in Agoura Hills.

The Dodgers could have added Bobby Abreu and Adam Dunn to the 2009 roster for $15 million with the potential to produce 60 homers and 200 RBIs and had $10 million left to spend on pitching. Instead, they're trying to sign Manny Ramirez for $25 million, who has the potential for 35 homers and 120 RBIs, and leaving the team with no extra cash to fill pitching holes on the roster. The economics of baseball just don't add up. Brian Greene Monrovia :: I am amused by the Dodgers' response to the possibility of lowering ticket prices for spring training games (currently $18-$100)

So Major League Baseball is about to sign an agreement with DirecTV for the rights to the MLB TV package that will disenfranchise 230,000 ardent baseball fans across the country. Has there ever been a baseball commissioner who has done less for fans? BRIAN GREENE Monrovia

Sasha Cohen wins the silver medal, yet The Times runs a picture of her falling down. Does this mean when Vladimir Guerrero hits three homers in a game, you'll run a picture of him striking out? BRIAN GREENE Monrovia Why all the mean-spirited nastiness directed at Sasha Cohen? Bill Plaschke's column was the worst. To suggest that she didn't deserve a medal is really hitting below the belt. Of course she did. After an inauspicious start, she rallied bravely and elegantly to skate a lovely program, racking up sufficient points for her unexcelled artistry and her technical skill.
