Quote of the Day: Roger Daltry Rates The Who’s Super Bowl Number


“I thought it went OK. I understand. It’s a TV show. Cameras were everywhere. I was so blinded that I couldn’t see… And I really wished the crowd would have gotten into singing the songs with us more. That’s how it is in Europe for our soccer matches. I wanted more banter.”

The Sicko in Moore

Michael Moore You might have seen trailers for Michael Moore’s new Sicko – one memorable clip shows President George W. Bush at a press conference. But, unlike Moore’s Fahrenheit 9/11, Sicko does not focus on the Bush administration (that’s better left to the comics, these days). This documentary is about American healthcare, an issue that many politicians say they care about, though precious little ever changes. The film focuses on pharmaceutical companies and corruption in the Food and Drug Administration, and is particularly harsh toward Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton. As the First Lady, Clinton was an advocate of a better health care system for all. Now that she’s a bona fide politician and possible Presidential candidate, Clinton is one of the biggest recipients of money from the health care industry. Sicko takes viewers inside the dark side of healthcare, showcasing the horrors that ordinary people must face when they discover they are underinsured (or worse, uninsured). While everyone else focuses on energy, global warming, and education, Michael Moore goes for the jugular of American politics and problems: health care.
