Gore announced yesterday he would not seek the presidency, leaving the race for Democratic presidential candidate wide open.
Gephardt praised Gore's long record of public service, and said his voice would be missed in the presidential contest.

St. Louis, MO – The American Civil Liberties Union will file a motion this week to dismiss charges against six men who were caught having sex.
The men were charged under a rarely used Missouri statute that bans sex between people of the same sex. The men were caught having sex during a March raid of an adult video store in High Ridge, 20 miles south of St. Louis.
A woman who also was caught having sex at the store was freed, because her conduct is not illegal under Missouri law.
