Devonté Hynes was probably the only person at last weekend's Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival to sing about the troubles of homeless New Yorkers and pose for a backstage photo with the pop star Katy Perry. But for Hynes, such contrast is the norm. Beloved by tastemakers for his work in a series of disparate indie bands - including the punky Test Icicles and the folky Lightspeed Champion - the 28-year-old musician has also affected the pop mainstream through collaborations with Solange, Kylie Minogue and Florence & the Machine.

SAN FRANCISCO -- On the publication day of a second magazine article detailing Yasiel Puig's dangerous escape from Cuba, the main subject of the story was smiling. “I feel normal,” Puig said in Spanish. “I'm focused on baseball and giving the best of myself to the team and, hopefully, everything turns out well on the field. Those things that are happening aren't affecting me.” Asked how he could remain focused in light of recent revelations about his past, Puig was about to start answering, only for a Dodgers staffer to prevent him from doing so. The next inquiry was also shut down by Roman Barinas, the Dodgers' manager of international scouting.

Sadly, considering what's happening in our schools, the question has changed to, "What do you want to be if you grow up?!" GORDON MASON Los Angeles

I greatly enjoyed Agustin Gurza's article on music in Lima ["Music Helps Lima to Mend," March 25]. I'm always pleased to see Peru portrayed as a place with more happening than the usual emphasis on folkloric color. Lima's happening music scene richly deserves the attention you bestowed.

Could I really believe my eyes? Armored vehicles driving up the freeway into L.A.? Was this really happening on a bright, sunny day in May? My memory turned back to those days in 1946 when, as a child, I saw the same thing happening in England. Only then, we were at war, in the midst of a conflict. This time, the vehicles were rolling into the city, to prevent more destruction and bloodshed. How can we prevent it from happening in the future? As a democracy, the answer lies in our hands . . .

Around the L.A. Times we are spending most of the week thinking about the book prizes Friday night and the Festival of Books on Saturday and Sunday, but those aren't the only interesting literary happenings. In fact, Wednesday and Thursday are packed with people and things you can't see at the festival -- here's a quick overview. WEDNESDAY: Lorrie Moore interviewed by Brighde Mullins about short story collection "Bark" at ALOUD at the L.A. Central Library, 7:15 p.m.; free; sold out but standby tickets may be available.

Shabazz Napier wanted to make sure he had our attention Monday night. Of course the Connecticut guard had our attention, after scoring 22 points against Kentucky to lead the Huskies to an unlikely NCAA title and earning Final Four MVP honors for himself along the way. But just to be sure, Napier asked for everyone's attention during a nationally televised postgame interview that was being broadcast throughout AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas....

FT. HOOD, Texas - As soon as Suzy Sanders got word of the shooting at Ft. Hood on Wednesday, she began frantically texting her 21-year-old stepson, a soldier stationed at the Army post. His first chilling reply landed more than an hour later, at 5:22 p.m. "It happened right in front of me Suz," Pvt. Jacob "Jake" Sanders texted. "I watched my sergeant die. I tried to revive him. I'm fine. I love you. " Jake Sanders, a former varsity basketball player from a small town in Indiana, has a brown crew cut, square jaw and wide smile.

Few dates on the baseball calendar can match a home opener for pomp, ceremony and excitement. Or, in the case of Dodger Stadium on Friday afternoon, for long lines, crowded concourses and Wi-Fi snafus. But for the legions of blue-and-white-clad loyalists, what happened in the stands likely rated as nothing more than minor inconveniences compared to what happened on the field, where sloppiness fueled an 8-4 loss to the division-leading San Francisco Giants. On the reserved level, some in the sellout crowd of 53,493 waited in concession lines for as long as 45 minutes.

So if a game is played in the forest and only about 30% of the people could watch it, did it really happen? Or something like that? The Dodgers will play the Padres in San Diego this afternoon, and it is the official beginning of the end. The end of being able to watch every Dodgers game on television somewhere. Somewhere is now only Time Warner Cable, the lone major provider carrying the Dodgers' new regional sports network, SportsNet LA. To the vast majority of Los Angeles-area residents, the blackout begins.

The NBA just found its perfect matchup for next Halloween: San Antonio at Golden State. Just don't expect Tim Duncan and Jeff Ayres to play, because they are convinced the hotel they stay at when they play the Warriors is haunted. The Spurs were in Oakland last weekend to play the Warriors and stayed at the Claremont Resort. According to local history, the Claremont Resort is haunted by a 6-year-old girl who died in the hotel. After checking in, Ayres and Duncan made their way to their respective rooms, which were next to each other.

I used to go straight to Doonesbury when I picked up my morning paper; the last three weeks I have been going first to View Page 1 to see what's been happening with the women of the world. I do thank you for sharing so clearly and winningly that whole experience with us. JOHN D. MAGUIRE Claremont

Re "Larchmont loses another landmark," Jan. 1 As neighbors of Larchmont Boulevard, my husband and I have watched the erosion of a charming street with many different businesses (many owned by small-business owners) into the usual bland corporate chains and overpriced boutiques. The steady rent increases by the greedy landlords have tossed out many worthy businesses because they didn't have huge corporate parents or a business that could support passing on the costs to consumers. There's no point in complaining.
