Clr ' Rain Clr Clr Selleck, Kline kiss on screen NEW YORK — Smooching a man in a movie was no big deal for Tom Selleck, who once sued a supermarket tabloid that printed rumors he is gay. "My anxiety was whether people would buy it," Selleck says in the latest Entertainment Weekly. "My anxiety wasn't about whether I could kiss a man." The comedy "In & Out" features Selleck as a TV reporter who kisses a schoolteacher, played by Kevin Kline. The actors took two days and more than 30 takes to get the hug and kiss scene just right. "Tom is so big and so manly, he could, you know, just grab me," Kline said. "I was like Vivien Leigh to his Clark Gable." Selleck sued The Globe for $20 million in 1991 for running a story suggesting he was homosexual. He got an out-of-court settlement and a printed apology. "I knew all the tabloid stuff would come back up," Selleck said. "But the movie isn't an answer, or any sort of apology (to gay people) for me suing a tabloid for saying I'm gay. That's nonsense. ... No leading man in this business has ever gotten anywhere without somebody saying he's gay, and that's fine." Vonnegut's work is done DELAWARE, Ohio — Kurt Vonnegut has finished his life's work. Don't expect any more books from the author of "Slaughterhouse-Five," "Cat's Cradle" and "Hocus Pocus," Vonnegut said, adding that no one should be surprised he meant his latest novel, this year's "Time- quake," to be his last. "There's nothing prophetic about it," Vonnegut said Thursday at • Ohio Wesleyan University. "I'm 75 years old. Any insurance agent would say it better be his last novel." ~ In a speech on creativity and censorship, Vonnegut advised people to "try to get away with as much as they can, but not too much." '. Some artists' use of the cross and desecration of the flag is an example of "too much." But, Vonnegut said, "It's not'the business of government to keep you from having your feelings hurt. Stone returns to Yale NEW HAVEN, Conn. — Oliver Stone returned to Yale, where he attended classes in the 1960s, to hawk his novel about a fictional character named Oliver Stone. . "That's part of the relay race. You pass the torch on," Stone said Friday, "you take from your time and you hopefully make it intense and interesting, and people read it and they know what it was like in the "60s." From Wire Service Reports VONNEGUT T ADVICE Readers angry that elderly drivers keep licenses Dear Ann Landers: I was furious when I read the letter about "Uncle Bob," the 86-year-old man who is fighting to hang on to his driver's privileges even though he has failed his driving test five times and his doctor has ordered him to stop driving. Last year, I was struck by a car while crossing the street with a green "walk" signal. The driver was an 86-year-old woman in a 1984 Cadillac Coupe De Ville. She told the police she didn't see me until I landed on the hood of her car. I was w lucky to escape with two sprained ankles. Her driver's license? She didn't have one. — Oakland, Calif. Dear Oakland: I don't know when I've received so much angry mail. The read- ANN LANDERS Creators Syndicate Inc. ers were truly incensed. They called Uncle Bob a potential murderer, among other things. Keep reading: From San Francisco: At age 85, Dad bought a new car. It wasn't easy to wrest the old Dodge Dart from him, but we did it. When he turned 90, we knew it was time for him to stop driving. He did, too, but resisted. Then, we showed him a news story about a 90-year-old man who went for a Sunday drive, encountered a steep hill, lost control and plowed into a car, killing the driver and her four young children. That did it. Santa Ana, Calif.: Two years ago, I was driving along, five months' pregnant, when out of nowhere, a car slammed into me. I was stunned and terrified. The driver of the other car was an elderly man returning to his retirement home. An ambulance arrived, and the elderly driver and I were told to get in, even though neither of us was hurt. Soon, it became obvious from his senseless babbling that he TV TONIGHT was in the latter stages of senility. Something must be done to get these very old drivers off the road. They are every bit as dangerous as drunks. Euless, Texas: Many elderly people quit driving when their eyesight fails. Bless them. The ones who are too stubborn to give up their independence will continue to victimize others because of their selfishness. Waco, Texas: I am an M.D. who had to take my father's driver's license away because I knew if I didn't, something terrible was sure to happen. My mother was furious with me. She said I was not "defending" him as a son should. I told her I was "defending" the pedestrians and other drivers because driving is not a right,' it's a privilege. — Harry Slade, M.D. Boca Raton, Fla.: Two years before my father died at 85, he tried to drive while experiencing a heart attack. When we arrived at the hospital, I told him his driving days were over. Although I pro- vided him with alternate transportation, he never forgave me. If an elderly parent insists on driving, hide the keys, disconnect the battery, remove the distributor cap or let the air out of the tires. Chicago: My 86-year-old father should not be driving. He has had a heart attack and is stone deaf, and his vision is poor. He refuses to give up his car keys. Driving is his whole life. When my mother was on her deathbed, his main worry Vvas that people who came to see her would block the driveway and he wouldn't be able to get out. What can we do? — Between a Rock and a Hard Place Dear Between: nYou can bite the bullet, take away his car keys and arrange . with family members or a livery service to take him wherever he wants to go. Expensive? Yes, but a lot cheaper than hospital bills or a wrongful death suit. ' Thanks to all who wrote for those excellent letters. You have helped save some lives today, and I am grateful. 9/28/97 7:00 7:30 8:00 8:30 9:00 9:30 10:00 10:30 7:00 7:30 8:00 8:30 9:00 9:30 10:00 10:30 I PBS, Bunker Hill-Hays Nature 82663 Anyplace 4312 Kwp Up 1549 Sister Wendy't-Pilntlng 88667 Murder 71664 MrBean 80312 I MTV Road Rules Road Rules Daria 779664 BMvIs 798799 Mvlah Carey Austin Stories Lovellne 936022 | NBC, Wichita M*n-B8dly Jenny 935 Movie "Cloned" (1997) Elizabeth Perkins.
