Essential California: Go Rams!

The Rams are in the Super Bowl on Sunday. In their future home of Inglewood, that should provoke pure joy. But there’s also sadness and uncertainty. Next year the Rams will move into a majestic new stadium rising within walking distance of Ms. B’s M&M Soul Food Restaurant, the one with this banner out front: “Welcome Rams, Come Try Our Yams. Love, Ms. B.” Beverly Brinson has lived and worked in the Inglewood area since 1974, when she fled an abusive situation in Mississippi and rode the bus here. She was 25, and she carried all she had that was precious. “Two babies,” she said, “and $17 in my pocket.” But rising rents have left her at risk of losing her spot. Los Angeles Times
