Letter to the L.A. TIMES

Regarding a write-up on HOUSE.

Its creator demands credit in the L.A. TIMES:

Shore, who also has an Emmy nomination for writing for a drama series, admits he owes much to Arthur Conan Doyle, though the limp, he insists, was his own idea. "I wanted House to be damaged emotionally and to have a physical manifestation of that," Shore says. "

I have walked with a limp since childhood. Therefore, according to Shore, I must have been one hell of a sick-son-of-a-six-year-old to catch polio like that. And poor Stephen Hawking must be a nightmare bundle of neuroses inside that crumpled little body.

I can definitely give Shore credit for crassness, as well as lack of ability to create valid dramatic characters. We have seen plenty of ethnic and career stereotypes whenever a lame writer wants to depict laziness, sneakiness or greed. And now we can add television writers and executives as the stereotype for self-inflated hollow heads.
