Mayor Tom Bradley's call for more recognition in the media of Los Angeles theater ("Have You Heard? L.A.'s a Great Theater Town," Counterpunch, July 1) ignores two factors: First, compared to a movie ticket at $3.50 for the bargain matinee and $7 for general admission, the lowest-priced ticket for "Phantom of the Opera" in the upper balcony at matinee time is $37.50. Most people pay between $50 and $75 to see a show such as "Phantom of the Opera" or "City of Angels." Second, New York City and London are known as theater towns, but both lack the "tourist attractions" of Los Angeles, such as Disneyland, Universal Studios, Knotts Berry Farm, Magic Mountain, the Walk of Fame on Hollywood Boulevard and more.

A campaign to reduce crime in Griffith Park and other recreational areas in Los Angeles cleared its first hurdle Tuesday when a City Council committee approved a proposal to almost double the park ranger staff and allow the new rangers to carry guns. The council's Recreation, Library and Cultural Affairs Committee voted 2-1 in favor of the motion, which has been supported by Los Angeles Police Chief Daryl Gates and Jim Hadaway, general manager of the city's recreation and parks department.

Obesity among low-income preschool-age children has declined slightly in many states, including California, providing some evidence that the battle against childhood obesity may finally be turning, according to researchers at the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. The percentage of obese children among low-income 2- to 4-year-olds from California dropped from 17.3% to 16.8% between 2008 and 2011, and declined in 18 other U.S. states or territories. Obesity prevalence increased in only three states, according to a study summarizing the findings.

Their lives intersect on the page of history titled George Washington Carver. A mutual interest in Carver brought them together: Frank Godden, an 83-year-old who knew the humble scientist, and 48-year-old Abdul-Salaam Muhammad, who meticulously researched his childhood hero. Ask the men about Carver, and the response is the same. They recite long lists of his agricultural discoveries. They speak passionately of the creations he gave the world, while asking nothing in return.
