On Wednesday, Oregon beat Wisconsin to win the Rose Bowl with a roster including [more than 30 players who grew up within 70 miles of Pasadena](. The real losers? USC and UCLA, writes columnist Bill Plaschke. The power of a logo. It’s been a familiar sight around Southern California for decades: cartoon caricatures of three guys named Mark, Dan and Wayne and the words “Western Truck Exchange.” Here’s [the story behind L.A.’s best logo](. Black drivers face more police stops. Black drivers in some of California’s largest cities are [stopped and searched by police at higher rates]( than white and Latino motorists, according to a new state analysis. The findings appear to largely confirm what independent researchers and black drivers have long discussed: “Driving while black” means a higher risk of a law enforcement encounter. A solid snowpack.

The Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival, scheduled for April 10-12 and 17-19, [announced its full lineup]( Thursday night.

From the perspective of 10 local food writers, this is how Los Angeles [became the most exciting food city in America]( over the last 10 years.

Eliot to Emily Hale, the object of Eliot’s affection for decades, and a woman regarded by many to be a “muse” to him. With the release of the letters came a statement from Eliot, directed at future readers of his very personal words. The statement itself is worth reading in full — for both the revelatory slice of autobiography it offers and the confirmation that even the greatest poets of the English language can be fantastically petty on the subject of unconsummated love. (And I would be remiss if I didn’t also note the great headline the statement inspired in the British daily the Telegraph, which read, in full, [“T.S. Eliot’s letter from beyond grave: I did not have sexual relations with that woman.”]( [Houghton Library]( From the archives: Dexter Filkins’ 2013 profile of Gen.
