SINCE the last week of May, a 14-year-old Savannah, Ga., boy, Tommy McCoy, has received some unwanted notoriety.On May 26, he threw out the first pitch at the Class A Savannah Cardinal's game; the team's game on May 28 was named "save Tommy's job night."This may seem odd, but not as bizarre as what the U.S. Department of Labor did -- it got Tommy fired. He lost his job as the Cardinal's batboy for violating child-labor laws, which prohibit 14- and 15-year-olds from working past 7 o'clock in the evening during the school year, and 9 o'clock in the summer.

Finally, a drama free night on "American Idol," and the best night to date. It's a fact, everything is BIGGER in Texas! We joined the contestants in San Antonio and Long Beach tonight and neither town let us down. Actually they both did the absolute opposite and lifted the show to a new plateau. There were no nicknames, cat fights and minimal appearances by low- or no-talent hopefuls. The show began with the return of Vincent Powell who made it to the end of Hollywood week last season -- and what a return.
