How to stop Michael Moore

Allow the free market to do so. Why didn't we think of this before?

According to the below article, just over 400 theaters have agreed to list the movie when it opens next week. I would guess the deadline to agree would be within the next couple of days to make sure it gets into local papers in time.

Sure. MM got a distributor. So did Mel Gibson. We saw what grass roots movement did for The Passion. Unfortunately, I don't think MM has the same fan base (per se) that Jesus Christ does. So, it will play in the theaters for a couple of weeks. And then there will be a another flurry of controversy when it goes to DVD in a few months.

Personally, I plan on passing up on the whole thing.
