>I just saw Fahrenheit 9/11. I went because so many of
>my students urged me to see it, and because my son
>wanted to see it because so many of his friends told
>him he had to see it.
>It is a great movie.
>After watching it, I paid close attention to what the
>audience was saying. This movie is having a profound
>impact in Bogotá. It has been playing to packed
>audiences for three weeks. Bush's stock has plummeted,
>and so has the USA as a whole - as a result.
>I saw the movie in a middle class neighborhood in the
>north of the city. People were very, very subdued at
>the end of the movie.
>"That could be Bogotá if we let the United States come
>here" was what one very well dressed lady was saying
>as we left.
>But, after watching the portrayl of Al Gore and the
>Democrats in the movie, and listening to and reading
>what Kerry has to say now about the war on Irag - ...
>It is hard to understand how Moore can be supporting
>All the best, Anthony
