Thread Name: BS: Michael Moore's Bowling for Columbine
Subject: BS: Michael Moore's Bowling for Columbine
I know a few Mudcatters have already seen Michael Moore's movie Bowling for Columbine and mentioned it in other threads. It is coming out in theatres, today. He was interviewed on Oprah, today and she showed quite a few clips from it. She also had Glassman on, who is the author of Culture of Fear: Why Americans fear the wrong things. He also appears in Moore's movie.
The culture of fear thing and the movie's message, from what I could gather, follow along the same lines as what some of us have been saying about the fearmongering which has been carried out in popular culture and by our government.
I'd be interested in hearing what anyone else thinks about the movie, book, and/or subject. If this is too serious for you, have some language fun in this thread: AluMINIum or ALUminum.
