Sicko -- Topical Right Now!
Pros: Our plight. Will.the.damn.bill.pass? Imperfect, controversial, we need to start somewhere.
Cons: It's a Moore film. There is rhetoric.
I first wrote this in 2007, directly after coming out of the theater. It's an auspicious weekend for the topic, and I wonder how we let this happen.
