Part way through the film, I was all set on Canada, and then Michael Moore goes to France. Liberté, égalité, fraternité. The people are happy and the doctors make house calls.
Frankly, I’d take just about any country where, should I ever (God forbid) have a major medical problem, I wouldn’t end up with a bust-the-bank bill.
2. I have another unintended consequence courtesy of Al Gore’s Live Earth concert. Did you watch any of it? I didn’t like the coverage on NBC (celebrities spewing earth-saving tips? Feh.). But the 7 hours of CNBC coverage was pretty good. While I didn’t learn anything new, I did recommit to my canvas shopping bag.
But did Al mean for me to become a consumer? Of music, I mean? I was surprised to find that I liked a lot of stuff I didn’t think I’d like. I like Linkin Park? Jeez! Who knew? Toni Collette has a band? Her voice is awesome. I like Razorlight?!?!?!
