SHARE MOVIE-RATING PIONEER BARES REACTION TO `LESS THAN X’ IDEA

Jack Valenti, father of America's movie rating system, has a simple response to gripes about the X ratings given sexually explicit but not hard-core pornographic movies, like "Tie Me Up! Tie Me Down!" His answer: the rating system won't change.

"There are no plans to insert a new `A' (for adults-only) category," says Valenti, president of the Motion Picture Association of America. "We thought about this years ago, and it was discarded."
