Here's Al Gore in his address to the AIA:
"It's in part a spiritual crisis," Gore told the crowd in the Convention Center at the American Institute of Architects national convention. "It's a crisis of our own self-definition — who we are. Are we creatures destined to destroy our own species? Clearly not."
So Al's concerned about our spiritual crisis. I remember the 80s when Al and Tipper feigned evangelical, anti-abortion fervor; Tipper went toe-to-toe with Frank Zappa over music censorship and labeling (Zappa was brilliant). They did what they had to do: winning their constituency in conservative Tennessee. Now Al is trying to capture a different audience, so he bows down to different gods.
