Not Idols Yet, Just Practicing
The competition is over and the merchandising has begun for American Idol, which was a much better name for a television series than The Worlds Longest Audition. Kelly Clarkson, who won the recording contract, and the Fox network shows other nine finalists are now touring. The package came to Nassau Coliseum here tonight for an audience packed with squealing young girls. Only the judges were missing.

The judges and the television audience, which voted contestants off American Idol, chose well. Ms. Clarkson had the warmest, roundest voice among the women, and Mr. Guarini was most comfortable onstage, though he overplayed what was supposed to be boyish charm..

More Troubles for Lohan Lindsay Lohan, who recently checked herself into a substance abuse rehabilitation facility, is being sued by a Los Angeles man who alleges that the actress crashed her car into his van almost two years ago while she was under the influence of alcohol. The lawsuit by Raymundo Ortega also names the Ivy, a fashionable Los Angeles restaurant, as a defendant, saying the establishment served Ms. Lohan alcohol even though she was under age.

Sony Says Sorry The Sony Corporation apologized yesterday to the Church of England for a computer game that features a bloody shootout inside an Anglican cathedral, The Associated Press reported. The church had demanded withdrawal of Resistance: Fall of Man, which includes a gun battle between a soldier and aliens inside a building that resembles Manchester Cathedral in northwest England. It was not our intention to cause offense by using a representation of Manchester Cathedral, said the letter to the Very Rev. Rogers Govender, dean of the cathedral. If we have done so, we sincerely apologize. A Sony spokesman said the letter included the offer of a meeting with church officials, which Dean Govender said the cathedral would accept. But he underlined the churchs opposition to the gun violence seen in this portrayal of the cathedral. The church was particularly concerned because Manchester has a history of gang-related gun violence. In its letter, Sony said it did not accept any connection between the game and social issues in contemporary Manchester.
