It's not a secret that I don't care for Michael Moore. I think he's a pest, stirring up volatile emotions around the country with no real benefit. He's not the only one; they exist on both sides, but he's probably the most public.That's why I was surprised to hear that he's coming to UVSC in Orem, Ut, a conservative haven if there ever were one. It's costing $50K, a lot of money, and needless to say there's a lot of controversy. I think diversity can be good, but I don't think extreme wingers like him are helpful. I can't say I'd support the event , but it should be interesting.Update:

Apparently, the college in question, UVSC, is now looking to invite Sean Hannity, a less public, but still controversial right-winger. I think it would be much more constructive to get two rational people together from each side. But then again, fireworks are gonna sell more tickets. Sigh...
Well, you can't blame the libs in Utah for wanting the most divisive characters they can find. When people feel seriously in the minority politically, there is a desire to rabble rouse just to get some attention.
