One of the small bits of progress network television seemed to have made during the last two decades was the disappearance of family sitcoms featuring incredibly precocious kids. Remember Arnold Jackson (Gary Coleman) of the 1978 NBC sitcom Diff'rent Strokes, or Webster Long (Emmanuel Lewis) of the 1983 ABC sitcom Webster? Well, they're back in the form of 7-year-old Jimmy Morgan (Bobb'e J. Thompson) in the new NBC sitcom The Tracy Morgan Show. How much viewers like or dislike the series will probably depend on how they feel about sitcom kids.

As you know, truck driver fatigue has recently garnered wide media attention because of the tragic crash that occurred on the New Jersey Turnpike that killed one man and critically injured others including actor Tracy Morgan ( "Keep truckers alert," June 9). Unfortunately, the Tracy Morgan crash is just one example of the hundreds of thousands of truck crashes that occur on our nation's roadways each year. Every minute and a half of every day, a large truck is involved in a crash resulting in, on average, 4,000 yearly fatalities and 100,000 more injuries.

The horrific traffic crash last Saturday at 1 a.m. on the New Jersey Turnpike that killed one person and left comedian Tracy Morgan in critical condition at a hospital near Trenton calls attention to the danger of tired truck drivers. Investigators suspect the driver of a Walmart tractor-trailer had dozed off when he slammed into the back of the comedian's limousine bus which was returning to New York from a show in Dover, Del. The exact circumstances are not entirely clear, and police have stressed that the incident remains under investigation.

First Sunday is a movie about forgiveness that asks its audience to forgive too much - with regard to both its characters and its makers. Set in Baltimore, with a few exteriors shot downtown, this uneven comedy plays a robbery and hostage-taking at a church for laughs, even when its supposedly sympathetic main character pulls a gun and seems plenty ready to use it. The movie is so confused about itself that it comes across as toneless, a bunch of characters...

The Ravens arrived at the Under Armour Performance Center on Saturday morning with the expectation that they would have to pull on their pads for another afternoon practice in the sun. But midway through a team meeting before the scheduled practice, coach John Harbaugh showed the players a couple of videos of comedian Tracy Morgan to lighten the mood. As the players watched the clips on the large projection screen in the team auditorium, the former “Saturday Night Live” and “30 Rock” star suddenly walked into the room.
