My favorite line -

"The industries that profit so hugely from our illnesses spend hundreds of millions of dollars on advertising, public relations and lobbying to “tell their side of the story.”"

I've been surprised by how many Sicko commentaries complain about the movie being one sided, as though the medical industry is some misunderstood little guy.

They're just trying "To Serve Man".

How can the US medical insurance and big pharmaceutical companies
resist the assault of Michael Moore and the tens of trillions of dollars he
has at his disposal? They will flail around helplessly like marionettes
getting electroshock therapy, mark my words.

This is ONE MM film that I might watch and be interested in.

But, he could do exposes (where is the funny E character?) on many things.

1. auto deaths
2. any number of large government-run bureaucracies
etc.

Sorry to have to tell you, it's merde, not merdé



"In science it often happens that scientists say, 'You know that's a really good argument; my position is mistaken,' and then they would actually change their minds and you never hear that old view from them again. They really do it. It doesn't happen as often as it should, because scientists are human and change is sometimes painful. But it happens every day. I cannot recall the last time something like that happened in politics or religion." (1987) -- Carl Sagan
