Michael Moore's latest blockbuster will hit the cinemas this Friday. Don't miss it. I saw it and appreciated it last night, 9/17, but found the Q&A session with him afterward far more interesting though I do refer to the film also. Priceless footage. I hope it scares us all into action with its warning even more dire than Al Gore's in DC nearly 10 years ago, his Inconvenient Truth.

Greg Palast and Rev. Jesse Jackson Sr. have converged from both sides of the country into its Heartland, Kansas, and will proceed to the South, Atlanta, suing 27 states plus two SoS's running for governor, Kris Kobach and Brian Kemp. They aim to re-enfranchise voters illegally removed from the rolls for the crime of having similar names, not identical ones, even if they live on opposite sides of the country.
