I INTERVIEWED Michael Moore recently for an upcoming “20/20” special
on health care. It's refreshing to interview a leftist who proudly
admits he's a leftist. He told me that government should provide
“food care” as well as health care and that big government would
work if only the right people were in charge.
Looking Backwards, Freedom,
benevolence go together
I think what scares me most about this Michael Moore quote is the “would
work if only the right people were in charge” bit. I guess only trained
professionals know what's right for our lives, and leaving the decision in
our hands is right out of the question.

ahead, I won't bite. I promise.
The dates are the permanent links to that day's entries (or
entry, if there is only one entry). The titles are the permanent
links to that entry only. The format for the links are
simple: Start with the base link for this site: http://boston.conman.org/, then add the date you are
interested in, say 2000/08/01,
so that would make the final URL:
You can also specify the entire month by leaving off the day
portion. You can even select an arbitrary portion of time.
You may also note subtle shading of the links and that's
intentional: the “closer” the link is (relative to the
page) the “brighter” it appears. It's an experiment in
using color shading to denote the distance a link is from here. If
you don't notice it, don't worry; it's not all that
