Bowling for Columbine
Winner of an Academy Award for Best Documentary, filmmaker Michael Moore's 'Bowling For Columbine' takes a somewhat humorous and oft-times serious look at firearms abuse in the U.S.. Traveling throughout the heartland of the country, Moore sets out to discover why Americans are so obsessed with their guns, which time and time again lead to violence. Through his travels, Moore also touches upon the tragedy at Columbine High, interviews NRA President Charlton Heston and takes on companies that sell firearms, including WalMart.

Michael Moore's movie is fraught with inaccuracy, ouright lies, & arguments void of logic.

You get an interesting look into violence in America, and how guns are so easily accessible.

There are nearly 300 million Americans--200 million of them of voting age. We only lost by three and a half million! (Day after the 2004 election) @ Mike's Letter on 11/05/04 @

Two weeks ago, at the Washington premiere, Moore sat a few rows behind Daschle. Afterward, says Moore, "he gave me a hug and said he felt bad and that we were all gonna fight from now on. I thanked him for being a good sport." (Time Magazine, 7/04) - DASCHLE DENIES HUGGING MOORE (Headline, Rapid City Journal, 7/04)

My pollster friend told me that he believes if Kerry wins, "Fahrenheit 9/11" will be one of the top three reasons for his election. (A few days before the 2004 election) @ Mike's Letter on 9/6/04 @
