Re "Bid to Boost Pensions for Council Fails," May 10: It is unfortunate that Los Angeles City Council members Hal Bernson and Ruth Galanter feel that they are unable to make ends meet on their respective $6,000- and $5,000-a-month city pensions. Perhaps they could utilize their vast experience and become lobbyists to help make Los Angeles a better place to live and supplement their meager incomes at the same time. Or we could all hold monthly bake sales or carwashes to help them make ends meet.

Lies, damn lies, and statistics all figure in “The Gambler's Daughter,” Paul North's new play about a mathematically gifted career gambler's troubled home life. Unfortunately, numbers don't tell the whole story when it comes to fully realized characters, and the piece battles long odds with limited success in a problematic debut staging at the Eclectic Company Theatre. In a small town two hours outside his Las Vegas stamping ground, professional gambler Lloyd (Edmund Wyson) faces a losing hand trying to mend fences with his estranged daughter, Mary (Laura Michl)
