On the Same Page

Okay, apparently I am not a complete crank or freak on these two issues. Watching Charlie Rose over lunch, the tech reviewers are saying the same thing I have about the iPhone -- worth getting but wait six to 12 months. Okay, sometime in 2008.

And while Michael Moore's Sicko is getting some positive reviews,
New York magazine did go so far as to call him a blow hard in their otherwise affirmative review, but the assessment in The New Yorker was to ultimately dismiss it as being "superfluous."

Last night, I was watching the Al Franken documentary called God Spoke that featured his encounters with the Fox News idiots and was reminded how much Sean Hannity and Bill O'Reilly have in common with Moore -- biased blowhards who consider facts and journalistic accuracy to be mere pesky details for their "greater truth." True progressives need someone with more integrity and less ego than Moore. I'm sure that qualifies me as a card-carrying member of the liberal elite, but so be it. Integrity may not be chic these days, but it feels like the right fit to me.

hmmm, integrity. But it takes so long to fact check, and there's so much less excitement when you have to report something other than your own beleifs. I mean, if they wanted to be straightforward they would have been scientists.
