A $10-million gift to UCLA's law school from alumnus Lowell Milken is stirring debate on the campus about the decision to name a business law institute for the former financier, who was linked to Wall Street's junk bond scandal two decades ago. A prominent business law professor has raised objections to the Milken gift and to UCLA's announcement this month that it will establish the institute in his name. But other law school faculty, along with top UCLA administrators, say they welcome the donation, noting that Milken was not convicted of any wrongdoing.

VH1 will look at hip-hop's influence on culture with a four-part documentary, the network announced  Wednesday.   Based on Steve Stoute's best-selling book, “The Tanning of America: How Hip-Hop Created a Culture That Rewrote the Rules of the New Economy,” VH1's documentary will provide a visual history of “the hip-hopification of America” -- which Stoute coined in his book as “tanning.” The series, which falls under the network's Emmy-winning...

One of the things that makes beer different from wine - apart from the fact that people don't wear funny hats to a wine tasting - is the range of flavorings that can be added to it: fruit, nuts, spices, coffee, chocolate; the list goes on. To make this beer, High Water Brewing throws 100 pounds of graham crackers into the brewing kettle. Yes, graham crackers, which may sound a bit gimmicky but, in fact, are quite successful. This is a stout, so expect caramel and molasses flavors, and like a lot of present-day stouts, its mash includes chocolate malt, so there's a trace of that.

George Bush and his smarmy, unctuous cohorts have made a mockery of the judicial system. It is a sad day for women. KAROLE STOUT, Los Alamitos

As another Letters-to-the-Editor buff, I have had much pleasure in recent years from the insights of Anthony P. Cima of San Diego. I have never met him but feel as though I know him, and I am sorry he was injured in the earthquake when his books almost buried him. I wish him a good recovery. RUTH E. STOUT Claremont

Doesn't it make sense to have a President who is not eager to involve himself in a questionable no-win war? Perhaps he won't be so quick to try to prove his machismo by drawing lines in the sand, but have the ability to find other solutions. KAROLE STOUT Los Alamitos

Allyn Conwell has a qualification that David Gergen and George F. Will do not have: he was there. These two columns (Editorial Pages, July 2) show so well why there never will be peace in the world. These two guys can't be understanding and tolerant of their own decent fellow American acting under enormous emotional stress. RUTH E. STOUT Claremont

WASHINGTON - From the time he stepped onto the national stage, Barack Obama presented himself as a civil libertarian who would take a different path from that of his predecessor, who authorized surveillance on Americans in the fight against terrorism. "It is time to write a new chapter in our response to 9/11," Obama said in a 2007 speech that outlined his vision for national security. But revelations this week of a massive phone and Internet data collection program illustrated that as president, Obama has allowed the government to sweep up vast amounts of information about its citizens while establishing some checks on executive power.

In 1980, R. Crumb produced a set of 36 trading cards called “Heroes of the Blues.” It's a great little set, backing Crumb's drawings with short biographical sketches of performers such as Blind Blake , Charlie Patton , Big Bill Broonzy and Peetie Wheatstraw . If there's any downside to the project, it's that it doesn't cover enough territory. Only 36 musicians? That barely scratches the surface of this most quintessential of American folk art forms. As it turns out, this is the motivation for William Stout's “Legends of the Blues,” coming May 7 from Abrams ComicArts, which picks up where Crumb left off. Featuring 100 musicians, the book has little overlap with “Heroes ...” -- save, as Stout says, “ Skip James and Blind Willie Johnson , two bluesmen I just couldn't bear to leave out” -- making the projects complementary in the most fundamental sense.

Monday sees the release of two of California's most respected and coveted imperial stouts: Stone Brewing's Imperial Russian Stout and Firestone Walker's barrel-aged oatmeal stout Parabola . Stone Brewing releases their "IRS" beer every April 15, and this year they are adding an "odd beer for odd year" variant that adds espresso beans to the mix. Russian Imperial Stouts -- so named because the first of these highly alcoholic stouts were...

For some reason - maybe it's the longer nights - winter brings out a taste for dark, strong, malty beers: porters and stouts, particularly in the overpowering Russian and Baltic styles. They overflow with roasted flavors, and they're usually quite sweet. But that's not the only way they can go. Old Rasputin is a Russian imperial stout, meaning that it's very dark (it pours nearly black with a very high tan head) and alcoholic (9% by volume), but you taste very little sweetness. That's because of a bitterness level toward the top of the IPA range, though it doesn't register in the palate as bitter, rather as a dryness cleaning up after all the malt.

For those in the San Fernando Valley looking to get their burger, beer and French fry fix, Stout Burgers & Beer opened on Ventura Boulevard in Studio City this month. The new Stout is 50% larger than the Hollywood location, offering an indoor-outdoor circular bar and mostly outdoor seating. Diners seeking refuge from the summer heat may prefer to stick close to the bar, or come with a party of eight with hopes to snag the one of two semi-indoor booths. (Hint: Try coming in before 7 p.m. before it fills up.)

Here's a big bear hug of a dry stout. It pours dark, dark brown, virtually opaque, with a medium tan head. The nose is fairly malty with a hint of molasses, but it's also piney and a little peppery. On the palate, it's less sweet than the nose would suggest — in fact, hoppier than sweet, with a long, dryish, medium-bitter finish. Big Bear Black Stout actually registers 55 International Bittering Units, which is well up in IPA territory, though it's not as bitter as many a West Coast insane IPA (if you're in the mood for insane hoppiness, try Bear Republic Brewing Co.'s Red Rocket Ale)

It used to be called "grace under pressure," and more recently "keeping your cool." It is not Rather, but Bush who aspires to the President. If he cannot answer questions about his political actions, not matter how unfair, repetitive or brashly put without showing a temperamental and nasty response, he simply isn't qualified for the presidency.

Charlotte Stout went to the execution of the man who raped and killed her 8-year-old daughter hoping for an apology. She didn't get one. Robert Glen Coe was executed by injection early Wednesday, becoming the first person put to death in Tennessee in 40 years. Coe told Stout he forgave her for helping the state kill him. Though she didn't get the remorseful apology she's sought for more than 20 years, Stout did find peace with his death. "Please do not forget Cary's words--'Jesus loves you.' These are her legacy to her killer, to Robert Coe's family and to us. My child will finally rest in peace," she said.
