Re "Mayor Needs Full Firing Power," by Susan Estrich, Commentary, Jan. 5: Institutional memory is often useful in cutting through the con- flicting propaganda seeping out of City Hall relative to critical decisions being made by the two charter commissions. Estrich's screed fails to mention the consequences of absolute mayoral power that led to the worst corruption scandal in the city's history--the 1938 recall of Mayor Frank Shaw.

"Minotaur," like its mythological namesake, deals with a bull-like character who is a heavyweight boxer caught in a labyrinth of personal turmoil. The production is an interesting failure--alternately visceral and flabby. Dramatic literature's finest plays about boxing--"Golden Boy" (1937), "The Great White Hope" (1967), the short-lived Broadway adaptation of "Requiem for a Heavyweight" (1985)--featured gripping central characters.
