Trying to bolster his conservative credentials,Republican presidential hopeful Bob Doletoday attacked the music, movie, television and advertising industries for "poisoning" young people with "destructive messages of casual violence and even more casual sex." Senator Dole does not think censorship is the answer. "The solution lies closer to home, with the American people," he said during his week-long campaign kickoff tour. "Shame is a powerful tool; we should use it." TIME congressional correspondent Karen Tumulty says it first became clear that Dole wasleaning a little rightwardyesterday, when he pledged not to raise taxes. "This is a long way from the days when Dole was criticizing supply-side economics," she says. At an Ohio rally, Dole also said that he backs voluntaryschool prayer, and criticized President Clinton for failing to take a strong leadership role in the war on drugs.
