As movies are the common denominator of our culture, we remember certain scenes, certain conflicts, certain endings all our lives. Who can forget when Clark Gable carried Vivien Leigh upstairs in "Gone With the Wind"? Or when Richard Gere carried Debra Winger out of the factory in "An Officer and a Gentleman"? We also remember some last lines. Last lines are a critical part of any movie. They often summarize the story and suggest the future.

Tony Gonzalez has enjoyed a great NFL career, with his 1,242 receptions ranking No. 1 all time for tight ends and second-best in league history. And he's not finished yet. After playing last season 95% sure it would be his last, Gonzalez announced Tuesday that he would return to the Atlanta Falcons for one more season -- and one more chance to play in his first Super Bowl. "I'm happy to say that after speaking with my family, I'm coming back," Gonzalez said in a series of tweets Tuesday.

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.
