MARINES CHEER BARR'S SINGING

Those weren't jeers but cheers for Roseanne Barr, who revved up her infamous singing voice at a morale-boosting show for those left behind by Operation Desert Shield.

The star of the TV comedy "Roseanne" gave a free performance Wednesday night to about 800 Marines, spouses and children at the Marine Corps Air-Ground Combat Center.

Many thought she wouldn't try singing after her off-key rendition of the national anthem at a San Diego Padres baseball game in July went over like a beanball pitch.

But Barr did anyway.

"She makes you feel she's on your level. She's gone through what you've gone through," said Monique Ramirez, 23, whose husband is a Marine.
