Gore article leaned to the right

Your front page story ("Political gain in Gore's Nobel?" Oct. 13) on Al Gore's Nobel Peace Prize states that Gore was "the loser of 2000's razor-thin presi- dential election." This is not exactly true. The Supreme Court inter- vened before the vote could be com- pleted in Florida. We'll never know who won. The Republican-dominated court essentially appointed Bush as president in one of the most disputed and dubious actions in Supreme Court history.

I was also distressed by the prominence your story gave to that minuscule segment of scientific opinion that disputes man-made global warming. It gave a very false impression.
