Very moving. Regardless of your opinions of Michael Moore or your political views, *everyone* should see the 2007 film Sicko, if you haven't yet. It is an eye-opening view into what it means to have, and not have, health insurance in the U.S., and illustrates the ridiculous, capitalism-distorted filters that our healthcare system imposes on what should be a basic human right: to be cared for when ill. I think you already knew that, and this video shows it as well. But the film is also a reminder that the system *is* in our control - we have the power to change things in this country - and that the American Way is certainly not always the best way. With primaries in full swing and the academy awards coming up, the timing is perfect. It is available on DVD now.
