During their long tenure as artistic directors of South Coast Repertory in Costa Mesa, David Emmes and Martin Benson nurtured numerous plays that have gone on to national prominence, including "Wit" by Margaret Edson, "Three Days of Rain" by Richard Greenberg, "Rabbit Hole" by David Lindsay-Abaire and "Collected Stories" by Donald Margulies. The duo stepped down from their joint post in 2011 but remain active at the company, regularly directing stage productions. SCR, which is celebrating its 50th anniversary this season, announced Saturday that it is honoring its artistic co-founders by renaming its main venue, the Folino Theatre Center, after Emmes and Benson.

Lament of a humanist: Someone forgot to tell Koresh that there is no God, that the Bible is nothing more than a collection of folk tales and figments recorded by our human brothers, and that Jesus Christ was just another kind-hearted mortal like you and me. Too bad. DAVID MARTIN Newport Beach

The saying goes that necessity is the mother of invention, and for Vince Gerard it ended up being the mother of a new gallery in one of Southern California's artiest neighborhoods. The founder of Jazzartz got the idea for his project when he went shopping for fine-art prints of work by David Stone Martin, who designed more than 400 album covers for Billie Holiday, Charlie Parker, Stan Getz and others. Gerard was unable to find any, though, so he began creating them himself - buying albums on eBay, contacting the artist's estate and making digital replicas of original works.

Beaches in San Diego County that were closed after a deadly shark attack will be reopened today, authorities said. At least eight miles of seafront were closed over the weekend following Friday's attack, in which 66-year-old retired veterinarian David Martin died after his legs were bitten by a shark, thought to have been a great white. As of Sunday, there had been no sign of the fish, estimated to be about 15 feet long. It was the first such attack in San Diego County since 1994.

Sylvie Drake reviewed a video release of "New Faces (1952)" and obviously did not like it, which is fair, as we are entitled to our opinions. However, she made a point of singling out my client Robert Clary, using the phrase that Clary has "blissfully receded." Nothing is further from the truth. Clary has since "New Faces (1952)" appeared constantly on both big and little screens and has graced the stages of the world's theaters. He also tours the United States, giving of his time lecturing to students about the Holocaust, a subject which he knows well, as he survived Hitler's death camps himself when taken from Paris as a young boy. He came home; his parents did not. Clary has not receded.

Eric Owen Moss is flipping through architecture magazines in his Culver City office. There's Moss' 708 House on one cover, his Petal House on another, his Adams House on another. Nearly two dozen magazines are marked to indicate photographs of his projects, but he hasn't a clue what the captions say. He can't read Japanese. Moss hasn't built a thing in Japan. He was invited to compete for Tokyo's New National Theatre a few years ago, but he didn't get the commission.

David Stone Martin, a widely acclaimed illustrator who created more than 400 covers for record albums, as well as magazine covers, billboards, posters and advertisements for films, has died at the age of 78. Martin died Friday in New London, Conn. "We couldn't know," Los Angeles Times art critic William Wilson once mused in print, "what a delicate balance of talent, opportunity and social vectors it takes to create a phenomenon like Martin."

If this story is to be read at all, it is for the telling, not the tale. As the story unfolds, one has the sense of hearing it rather than reading it. This is the poet's skill. There are two voices: Alva's, whose memory hints at darkness; and the author's, evoking with excruciating precision a past landscape of place and soul. Beside the Illinois River lies Beaker's Bride, a Midwestern town on the verge of death.

In his introduction to "Tongues of Fire," David Martin, a professor of sociology at the London School of Economics, promises not to write like a sociologist. "I have tried to be simple," he says. "The technical language . . . can be converted to ordinary speech. . . . I want to present a world of (human) actors, as well as of (social) processes." If he had only done as he promised, this book would be welcome.

A book that is at once familiar and surprising, depressing and engrossing, makes demands upon its readers. Every American will recall the major episodes depicted by David C. Martin of CBS News and John Walcott of the Wall Street Journal in "Best Laid Plans: The Inside Story of America's War Against Terrorism."
