Hey, everyone, I am back from my trip to Cape Cod! It was definitely a mixed bag, but more on that later. Right now, I want to tell you quick about an offer that Michael Moore has made to all his fans in the US and Canada. If you haven't seen his movie 'Sicko', (see my previous post on this engaging movie here) I strongly recommend it, and as an added incentive to drop everything and run to the theater, Michael Moore has made us an offer we can't refuse in the form of a sweepstakes contest! Here's the deal straight from his newsletter:
To show my thanks to all of you who'll go see "Sicko" this weekend, (July 20-22) [I am] going to send one of you and a guest on a free weekend to the universal health care country of your choice! That's right. You'll get to pick one of the three industrialized countries featured in the movie where, if you get sick, you get help for free, no matter who you are. All you have to do is send us your ticket stub (make sure it says "Sicko" on it and has the name of the theater and this weekend's date on it -- Friday, Saturday or Sunday - July 20th, 21st, 22nd). Attach the stub to a piece of paper with your name, address, phone number and email and send it to: 'Sicko' Night in America, 888c 8th Avenue, Suite 443, New York, NY 10019. (Yes, you have to use that old 18th century device called the U.S. Postal Service, and it has to be postmarked on or by Tuesday, July 24th). First prize is a weekend in the city of your choice: Paris, London or Toronto. This includes airfare, hotel, meals and, most exciting, a representative from their fine universal health care system who will give you a personal tour so you can see how they treat their fellow citizens. You'll meet people who pay nothing for college and citizens who are in the fourth week of their six-week paid vacation. Oh, and you'll have time to see the Eiffel Tower, Big Ben or whatever they have in Toronto that is old and tall. (If you don't have a passport, we'll pay for that, too!)
So, here's the site for theater listings for Sicko, now there's no reason NOT to go!
