I took Alex and Fi to see the new Michael Moore movie last night. We all enjoyed it. It was fun to sit in an audience full of Canadians feeling smug about having better health care than Americans. Of course, it was typically Michael Moore - big G generalizations about our national persona vs theirs and heart-wrenching stories about people ill-served by the richest and most powerful nation in the world. Still, you have to give Michael Moore credit for entertaining people into thinking about important issues. While part of me wanted to yell, "It's more complicated than that!" quite a few times, I was also thinking, "fundamentally, he is correct."

So now we want to move to France. And believe it or not, maybe even Cuba. But that's just Michael Moore talking. If you aren't driven round the bend by manipulation and hyperbole you will enjoy this movie muchly.

question: how best to win hearts and minds to good causes?
