This paper is dedicated to Professor Dietrich Stauffer on the occasion of his sixtieth birthday. The morphology of brittle fracture surfaces are self affine with roughness exponents that may be classified into a small number of universality classes. We discuss these in light of the recent proposal that the self affinity is a manifestation of the fracture process being a correlated percolation process. We also study numerically with high precision the roughness exponent in the two-dimensional fuse model with disorder both in breaking thresholds and conductances of the fuses. Our results are consistent with the predictions of the correlated percolation theory.
