I was flipping through the channels when I came across the Oliver North program. He was talking about a discusshion that he had with Al Gore. Oliver North was telling Al Gore that he had many supporters. Al Gore's reply to him was, "Well all of your supporters must have an extra chromosome!" Oliver North said what Al Gore actually meant was that all of his supporters must have Down Syndrome.

I work for a high school and I just received a publication from the Illinois Education Association with Al Gore on the front page. The heading reads, the choice is clear: AL GORE! He is standing behind a podium which reads THE RIGHT OF AMERICA'S CHILDREN.
I just wonder if that will also include those of us who happen to have children with Down Syndrome.

I think Al Gore should be ashamed of his remarks and he owes the Down Syndrome community an apology.
