QUOTE OF THE DAY: " A speaker like [Michael] Moore is like a beggar in a New York City subway car. Even people who give to charity and the homeless resent this kind of panhandling, because it takes advantage of a captive audience. It's not like you can just jump out onto the tracks if you don't want to be bothered." -James Poniewozik of Time, weighing in with a fair, and savagely accurate assessment of Moore's Oscar speech. I've been thinking lately that Moore is akin to, as Tony Kornheiser said about Richard Williams, "a guy muttering to himself in a subway car."
