Etch A Sketch

Ohio Art's Etch A Sketch has gone platinum 100 times over, but until Angeleno artist Christoph Leland Brown got his hands on the classic children's toy, Hollywood failed to take notice. Today Brown's efforts are being featured at Etch A Fest, an exhibition of more than 200 of his Etch A Sketch creations. "I came out of the womb drawing," says Brown.

Ohio Art Co. agreed to stop collecting information from children who visit the Web site for its Etch-A-Sketch drawing toy, unless it receives written permission from their parents. Ohio Art, which said the children's data never were disclosed to other companies, also will pay $35,000 to settle a Federal Trade Commission complaint that alleges the company violated a regulation designed to protect children's privacy online. Shares of Bryan, Ohio-based Ohio Art rose $3.15 to $23.

Rick Santorum mocked the Romney campaign Wednesday for suggesting that, like shaking an Etch A Sketch, Romney will be able to revamp his image once the primary campaign ends. “Well, that should be comfortable to all of you who are voting in this primary, that whoever you're going to vote for is going to be a completely new candidate, remove all trace of any kind of marks and be able to draw a new picture, making pictures similar to when he ran Massachusetts, not as a conservative,” Santorum said during a campaign stop at Superior Energy Services, an oil and natural gas services company in Harvey, La. The comment came in response to a statement made by Romney spokesman Eric Fehrnstrom, who told CNN earlier Wednesday morning that the campaign would be able to “hit the reset button” in the fall.

Rick Santorum faced a room of Pennsylvania conservatives Saturday morning, offering not quite a mea culpa for the ways he'd disappointed them in the past, but presenting himself as humbled since his crushing Senate loss. Trying to shed his Washington insider image, he described his 2006 loss as a "gift" from Pennsylvania voters that forced him to step outside the Capitol Hill bubble and realize he wasn't really getting it. "The only thing I feel toward the people of Pennsylvania is overwhelming and profound gratitude," he said.

After he plugged a target with 14 rounds, Rick Santorum on Friday told a crowd of several hundred at an outdoor shooting range that Louisiana Republicans had a clear choice in Saturday's primary between a trusted conservative and an untrustworthy Obama lookalike. Santorum said that Mitt Romney shared the same views as President Obama on many of the most critical issues, including healthcare, global warming and Wall Street bailouts. “There isn't a dime's worth of difference on some of the most important issues of the day. There is no contrast.

There was Perry's memory lapse on the debate stage, which came to be known as his "oops moment.
