Disadvantages: Will the right people a) read it and b) listen and take action?

Few who watched the 2003 Academy Awards – the one where most of the actresses wore black as a mark of respect because of the war – could have missed Michael Moore. Whilst on stage to collect his well-deserved Oscar for “Bowling for Columbine” Moore made h ...
