Irish tenor Ronan Tynan moving to Boston

Irish tenor Ronan Tynan says he's leaving New York for Boston because he hasn't been able to find work in the months since a woman accused him of making an anti-Semitic remark.

The New York Yankees dropped their long-standing tradition of having the 49-year-old singer perform "God Bless America" during the seventh-inning stretch after the incident in October.

Tynan says other work has also dried up, and he's gotten angry e-mails and death threats.

He says his reference to "two Jewish ladies" in his apartment building was mistaken for a slur.

Tynan says he will still rent an apartment in New York. A Yankees spokeswoman says the team wishes him well.- AP
