Voter Tolerance and Morality

Regarding the Opinion page article "Voters' `New Tolerance' May Go Too Far," Sept. 29: I wonder why the author limits his moral criticism to Gov. Bill Clinton?

As a minister, I passionately believe in moral behavior. Our culture hurts for it. But why lower the moral boom on Mr. Clinton and look the other way when a host of entertainment stars as well as sports heroes live loosely? Will the author not ask Americans to boycott movies and stay away from sports events when players set bad examples? We indeed need a higher level of morality in our society - but across the board, please. James L. Ray, Franklin, Ind.
