I was appalled by a statement made by Vice President Gore in the Oct. 17 edition of The News, whereby he praised Hollywood for producing the lesbian TV character "Ellen." He went on to say the show "forced Americans to look at sexual orientation in a more open light."
But he did not explain how Americans can be "forced" to watch a TV show or to agree with his opinion or Hollywood's. Only I choose what shows I want to watch. I evaluate them for content and will not be "forced" into any opinions but my own. That applies on Election Day, too.
