Last year, even as she grew weaker from an illness she'd had for many months, the Rev. Josephine Pinkard of Severna Park kept telling her daughter, Avanette, of a dream she couldn't get out of her head. "I see the roof [of your business] opening up, and God showering the place with blessings," she told Avanette, who owns Essential Essence, a Laurel day spa and beauty salon. "I see it growing by leaps and bounds." At the time, the imagery seemed absurd. The Pinkards had started the business in 1997, offering their Severna Park home as collateral for a loan.

This week, "America's Got Talent," the only place on television left for freaks and oddballs that doesn't demand they have some strange addiction or possess a nickname like "Honey Boo Boo," gave in to the regular guys. Too many of the show's strangest semi-finalists got sent home. Host Nick Cannon explained that this time they would "announce the results differently," which meant this first group of 12 semi-finalists got put into groups of three and then the results were revealed to each group.  Once cut down to four, it would be up to judges Howard Stern, Sharon Osbourne, and Howie Mandel, to eliminate one of the four, sending the other three to the finals.

"The Original Kings of Comedy" is Spike Lee's documentary of the tour that has been breaking box-office records for three years throughout the country. If you haven't heard of the Kings of Comedy - which comprises the talents of Steve Harvey, D.L. Hughley, Cedric "The Entertainer" and Bernie Mac - that's because the tour has remained oddly under the white mainstream radar, despite its enormous popularity. Indeed, a brief check of The Sun's archive at first revealed the tour has never stopped in Baltimore, although it has played here twice.

`Coach Carter' Rated PG-13; Score *** Bill Cosby wasn't a consultant on Coach Carter, but he might have been. Based on the life of the Richmond, Calif., high school coach who believed basketball was secondary to discipline, learning and personal responsibility, the film plays out like a Cosby-inspired catalog for African-American self-improvement. And it takes no prisoners. But for all Coach Carter's moralizing, it is an eminently palatable drama, and Samuel L. Jackson is first-rate as Carter, a high-school basketball star-turned-local businessman who takes the coaching job for a paltry $1,500 and succeeds in turning bad boys into men. There are certainly exceptions to be taken with the filmmaking, by Thomas Carter of Save the Last Dance (and a lot of TV)
