Officials at KSDO-AM (1130) knew they would get some interesting phone calls when their new morning talk-show host Michael Reagan started work Monday. Sure enough, when the first caller went on the air just after 5:30 a.m., the voice was familiar. "Mike, this is your old man," the caller said. Despite initial skepticism from the KSDO staff, who feared they were being made the victim of a prank, the caller was President Reagan.

Desperate to blunt the onslaught of Mitt Romney's attack machine and survive a likely loss in the Florida Republican primary, Newt Gingrich is branding Romney as a Massachusetts liberal and proclaiming himself the only true champion of Ronald Reagan conservatism. He's got Sarah Palin rooting - - or should I say “rootin' ” - - for him. B-movie tough guy Chuck Norris is in his camp. Herman Cain, who shares Newt's penchant for quirky ideas and marital elasticity, has endorsed him. And Reagan's elder son, Michael, a right-wing radio host, is campaigning at his side.

In order to make room for ultraconservative Rush Limbaugh's syndicated talk show, KSDO-AM (1130) confirmed Wednesday that it is dropping the weekday afternoon show hosted by Michael Reagan, the son of former President Ronald Reagan. The younger Reagan, who worked in sales and marketing, hosted a TV game show in Canada, raced boats and did fill-in radio work before joining KSDO three years ago, took over the afternoon slot two years ago.

I read Michael Reagan's anguished tirade against homosexuals with genuine compassion and understanding ("A Separate Peace," by Anne-Marie O'Connor, Aug. 31). As someone who grew up in a family poisoned by sexual abuse -- my late stepfather was the predator -- I empathize with the anger and shame that still gnaws at Ronald Reagan's oldest son, stemming from his abuse at age 7 at the hands of a male pedophile.

Los Angeles photographer Roger Sandler filed a complaint with police against Reagan over the Jan. 15 phone call. Reagan may be charged with a misdemeanor, authorities said Wednesday.

For years, Michael Reagan, the older son of Ronald Reagan, felt unloved and unwanted. His parents divorced when he was 3. Two years later he was packed off to a boarding school where, he says, he was so lonely he cried himself to sleep. Sexually abused at age 7, he felt shame and self-loathing, compounded by Bible passages that convinced him he would never go to heaven. He grew up so angry he smashed a childhood bicycle and later took a sledgehammer to his new car.

Despite Times reporter Anne-Marie O'Connor's obvious attempts at fairness and balance, Michael Reagan still comes off as a lamebrain, if not a lunatic, who claims to have been molested as a child but cannot discern the difference between a pedophile and a homosexual ("A Separate Peace," Aug. 31). I'm thrilled that he's finally come to terms with the color green, but whatever he is today was obviously shaped by childhood trauma that went far beyond sexual molestation. Ronald Reagan trumpeted the virtues of "family values" to worshipful voters but forced Michael to sleep on the couch so that he could employ a live-in cook.
