Fahrenheit 9/11 – Monday 26 July
Documentary maker Michael Moore’s 2-hour attack on George Bush is packing them in at cinemas around the country. Is it a work of genius or mere propaganda? Have your say in The Deep End’s Monday night talkback. 1800 211 811

An open letter to Vicki Kerrigan,

Having listened to your radio program, and being unable to secure a spare line, I am motivated to write down what I would have said.

In devouring mainstream media and having seen Fahrenheit 9/11, I have the spin on facts according to Rupert Murdoch and the spin on facts according to Michael Moore.
I can now choose to believe…
On balance, I believe Michael Moore.

I, along with the multitude of other intelligent Australians, have assessed the data and made decisions. Please don’t lose any sleep about us being too easily influenced.  

Very soon I will have the opportunity to exercise my democratic right to vote, and believe me I will think long and hard before I put my little pencil mark in the little boxes…..  

Naming my babies Moore, Wilkie and Brown

July 25th, 2004

My silenced rage (and that of Greens Senator Bob Brown) at the injustice of what has been happening not in my name in Iraq, auspiced by not my Prime Minister has now made the mainstream.
I spent yesterday afternoon at the Dendy Newtown in a full-to-capacity movie theatre showing F9/11. Whilst we were all different, we shared the desire to be informed, and informed we were.
Having seen Fahrenheit 9/11, the latest movie by Michael Moore, I can now take a break and drink my Peppermint tea knowing that the world of activism is in safe hands.

Now that I am calmed, I am going to devote my energy to conceiving a few new Australians. I plan to have triplets by 2005 so I can pocket the $1500 that this Government will pay me. With the money I will buy the book Axis of Deceit by Andrew Wilkie. I will alternate weekends reading aloud with weekends writing placards.
Gee, I wonder how much cardboard and fluorescent paint $1470.05 will buy?
