Pioneer developer John D. Lusk, who in 1946 left a job at a Los Angeles bank and went on to build a $500-million real estate empire, died Sunday at his home in Laguna Beach. He was 91. Lusk leaves as a legacy the development of much of post-World War II Southern California. His company, originally John D. Lusk & Son, now Lusk Co., built more than 40,000 homes and scores of shopping centers, office buildings and industrial parks.

This is regarding David Williams, the player who was docked $111,111 for missing the game to stay with his wife after the birth of their son. When my first son was born, I was in the Navy Air Corps in World War II. I just couldn't make it home and my pay was $31 a month. Boy, have things changed. JOHN LUSK Crestline

Let's say a person in Mexico is making $2 an hour. I figure if he or she wants to buy a $20,000 American car, he or she will have to save money for 40 years. By that time the world will be out of oil. JOHN LUSK Crestline

I would like to add my two hundred billion zillion "please's" to John Lusk's letter (Viewpoint, Jan. 23). Football broadcasting is no place for a woman. As for the "whiny" voices on the evening news, I would say they supersede whiny. They are horrible. CLAYTON BRYANT Inglewood

Please, please, please! No women in football broadcasting. We hear enough whiny voices on the evening news. If they want some action, let them get down on the field and play. JOHN LUSK Crestline

It seems to me that our ships are sitting ducks to any country that has missiles and can use them. One missile costing $200,000 can blow up a ship that cost $200 million. Does that make sense? They just approved two new carriers at a cost of $6.9 billion dollars. How many $200,000 missiles will it take to blow them up? JOHN LUSK Crestline
