For a dozen years, Tim Conway Jr. played host on weeknights at the former talk station KLSX-FM (97.1) -- the outlet where he and colleagues including Howard Stern, Tom Leykis and Adam Carolla held court with lifestyle observations and ribald humor. But this week Conway takes over nights at KFI-AM (640), the conservative news-talk powerhouse that's always near the top of Los Angeles-Orange County ratings -- and he says he feels more at home. "It was a little more loose over there" at KLSX, said Conway, 46. "I actually enjoy the politics, the calls."

Just weeks after it went on the air, liberal talk-radio network Air America Radio has lost its co-founder and chief executive as well as its top programming and operations executive.

Technology used to save premature babies might also be used to save fetuses that have been aborted, but scientists and bioethicists question whether abortion laws should be changed to reflect the scientific advances. "One of my concerns, looking at the new technology with regard to abortion, is that it is just part of the balancing act in an emotionally charged issue," said Joyce Bermel of the Hastings Center Report, a journal of bioethics.

Through a combination of fund-raising efforts and deep cuts in staffing and other overhead, the financially ailing Opera Pacific has accounted for $1.2 million toward its Aug. 31 goal of $1.7 million, Martin Hubbard, interim executive director, said Monday. "I've been very encouraged," Hubbard said. "But we have a lot still to do." The company hopes to raise another $20,000 at a fund-raising luncheon hosted by famed American opera star Beverly Sills at 11:30 a.m.

Allen Ginsberg is a great camera subject, but he's mostly been a subject in documentaries about other people, like Jack Kerouac or William Burroughs.
