America has long trafficked in the idea that so long as you have a sound mind, a strong work ethic and maybe a connection or two, the sky is the limit, and dreams can come true. Most of the time this idea is mythology, its metaphorical streets littered with broken souls who never came close or were within tantalizing reach of everything they wanted. And yet, the country still keeps this myth alive thanks to the scant few who do make it happen and the thousands, if not millions, panting for success.

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.
