Hated by The Powerful All Across America

Which might be one of the best reasons to like Michael Moore. He afflicts the comfortable, while comforting the afflicted. And now there's another reason for the uber-wealthy to despise Moore, and the impoverished to like him: his new movie, Sicko. The movie takes on the insurance industry, telling truths they don't want told, and that you should hear.

Go to this place and play some of the little videos in the windows. If you don't take the time, you'll miss Moore greeting an English black couple holding a baby, leaving the hospital, and his asking how much the birth costs. "Nothing" they explain. He's incredulous. The man says "This isn't America..." and they laugh a carefree, not indebted laugh.
