So, watched the Oscars last night. Thought that some of it was interesting…mainly the controversial parts of course. Michael Moore was phenomenally brave, I thought. To say what he said:

“We live in fictitious times. We live in the time where we have fictitious election results that elect a fictitious president. We live in a time where we have a man who’s sending us to war for fictitious reasons, whether it’s the fiction of duct tape or the fiction of orange alerts.”

“We are against this war, Mr. Bush. Shame on you, Mr. Bush. Shame on you.”

Was really amazing given the current state of the country. I completely agree with his “fictious” comments…I’ve been complaining for weeks about the made-up nature of the war, of the rational for it, of the attention paid to it…just amazing.

In the interest of getting some real news out there: 70 people were arrested in Cuba just a few days ago in an attempt to quiet government critics.
