While KFI's management might be excited about its new Limbaugh-Gates weekday lineup, its listeners will soon learn that one-sided political discourse does not make for "more stimulating talk radio." RON KOBAYASHI, Tustin

I wish the producers of KNBC's 5 p.m. news would have Bill Lagattuta as an anchor during the week instead of Keith Morrison. Bill is so warm, great to watch and listen to and Keith is cold. I would love to see Bill do the weekday news. My friends also share this view. Sue Packard, Encino

Judith Michaelson just can't get beyond the fact that Michael Jackson is no longer on weekdays on KABC. Her obsession with Jackson borders on the ridiculous. In her Jan. 15 article, "Howard Ascendant," why is his name in the same paragraph with Ronn Owens and Rush Limbaugh, when the piece was about weekday morning ratings? When KABC made the switch from Jackson to Owens, I was very resistant to the change. Over the months, however, I've become a big Owens fan. I've found his talk show to be a breath of fresh air. Michael Jackson's weekday show is history, Ms. Michaelson.

Talk station KABC-AM (790) is turning to a former Republican congressman rather than a former Republican senator to fill the spot being vacated by conservative commentator Bill O'Reilly. O'Reilly announced last year that he was giving up his nationally syndicated weekday radio show in the first quarter of 2009, and Westwood One, his distributor, said it had lined up former U.S. Sen. Fred Thompson (R-Tenn.) to take over. But KABC has decided instead to pick up the 2-month-old "The Joe Scarborough Show," featuring the former Florida congressman and current host of "Morning Joe" on MSNBC.

I have been a patron of the Insomnia Cafe since I have lived here (not quite a year). I am concerned about its troubles for two reasons. First, I feel that the whole tone of negotiations with this business has been confrontational as opposed to cooperative. From what I understand from The Times' coverage, the business has tried to be cooperative and to work with its neighbors. Second, I believe that Insomnia performs a number of valuable services to the community that have been overlooked.

Each weekday, when classes are done and the last bell sounds at Dorsey High , Jeremiah Allison steels himself. He folds his lean frame into a weathered SUV and drives three miles to a convalescent home in South Los Angeles. Slowly, somberly, sneakers sliding softly against the linoleum floor, he enters room 214. "Hi, Mom," he says, voice hushed. "Mom?" Time slows. Jeremiah, 17, holds her hands and kisses her cheeks. He tells her about his day, speaks of the prom and the future, of his college scholarship and how good it will be to live far from the troubled neighborhood where she raised him. Tugging his black baseball cap to shield his watery eyes, he flips through Bible verses on his cellphone and reads to her. "I will give you a new heart and put a new spirit in you....
