MM has it precisely right: after all, a person's world view comes from actually VIEWING the WORLD. Not just congress walls.That's something the ignorant lawmakers lack most of all, unable to look beyond the edge of their plates.

Will look forward to seeing Michael Moore's new film! Having a blinding blizzard here in west Texas and that is a true oddity! Thanks for posting, Lynn!

I wish every person on the planet could travel internationally....I wish it were a requirement for graduation from schools....I wish every one of us would be required to actually find their way alone in a foreign country. Experiences like these are critical to any understanding of the world.

SIGH

I haven't seen very many Michael Moore movies but I really like him and hope to catch up on the rest of the movies someday.

I look forward to seeing MM's new flick, but I'm a foot short of seeing it anytime soon.

Michael Moore is a national treasure!

Siham and her two girls going to Canada...Oh Canada!

Dozier and Florida Republikans, happy together!

Ted's "true oddity" is a piece of the evidence for global warming that gets short shrift in the Lone Star state, as global warming predicts that weather extremes are "going to get extremer."

I hope for your sake it didn't snow, Lynn. It doesn't help much if you're a good and careful "snow-driver" if others are not and are still half intoxicated from the holidays.

A Sudoku would be very nice, although I've never done one with the timer on.

Alternet: Darn, I would've loved to see the video with Colbert interviewing Moore... Sounds like a movie I'd gladly pay for to see. Sigh...I'll have to wait until it makes it to Europe, and that'll take some time.

MoJo: I remember the closing down of the school and the excavation of its "graveyard" making headlines all the way in Europe. Not that we didn't have so called reform schools with terrible records, we had them and those run by the Catholic Church were the vilest, but they had all been closed in the late 50s and early 60s. It's unimaginable that schools like that, with such an obvious bias towards African-American boys, were still running fifty years later, much in the same fashion as before. Just to think how boys as young as 6 years old died there, makes you want to weep. The sad thing is that it doesn't sound like those boys will ever see justice served in their name. Even the closing of the school is still on record as due to budgetary problems.

CBC: Siham and her twins are fortunate to have come on the radar of the Fairlawn Avenue United Church in Toronto whose members made it possible for them to come to Canada. But hundred thousands of other Palestinian refugees, some of whom have been exiled from Israel since the sixties are still in those terrible camps which have been under siege for years now. Unlike Syrian refugees, these Palestinian "double" refugees that have fled Yarmouk, are often turned away from other camps because they have no papers to prove their citizenship. These are a people that are really stuck between a rock and hard place with nowhere to turn.

My Universe: Melodramatic or not, who could resist a face like that?

LS: Driving is dangerous with snow, ice, black ice on the roads. Driving habits call for a change in them to safely negotiate the roads. Star Wars - Will try to see it in 3D soon. I remember when the first one came out. The line was long! Pot smoke hung in the air inside the theater. When the Falcon went into hyper-space, it blew the audience away with loud gasps. Yep, I remember. lol.

AlterNet: This new film by Michael Moore should open up discussions by people of all backgrounds. I'm looking forward in seeing this film at the local fully restored Sebastiani Theater in town. From the preview and on the Colbert Show, it showed a variety of ideas that should be imported to this country. Importation of ideas equals "This is what we need to do" in USA is in reference to good ideas from other countries.

Since this will most likely be a talking film, I'll have to wait for the DVD with CC to fully understand the film. I do so enjoy the BIG screen. lol.

As we all know, Michael Moore is hated and despised by the GOP and its ilk for his films. As long as the GOP continues to control Congress, there will not be any importations of ideas into USA. VOTE and get the GOP OUT!

MoJo: If this is the same school I read about not too long ago, this school did not close down because of budgetary problems, it closed down because of the high number of "deaths" which occurred during its history. The people who ran this school were staffed with psychopaths, abusers of the worst kind. It may have a record of 96 children died but the count may be much higher than what the official records show. Glad it was shut down.

CBC: Lucky for Siham Abu Sitta and her two daughters being sponsored for citizenship in Canada by Fairlawn Avenue United Church in Toronto. But, what about all the other people caught up in being a refugee of no country as are the Palestinians and others. The photo of them lining up in the crowded streets to receive food supplies is unimaginable but there it is. And what about refugees from other countries...

Universe: Silly overly dramatic kitties. lol.

In Colorado now, driving mountain passes in snow is a piece of cake compared to driving I-25 in snow through Denver or Colorado Springs, for the same reason as Vancouver - they don't change their wild driving habits for anything!

To quote The Great Cat, hurrying! Hugs!

I enjoy Sudoku, but never with a timer.
Love Michael Moore; he really has a way of looking at the world that makes us all stop and think about what he's saying. Unless, of course, it's the rabid Right, since they really don't think beyond their bubble.
I wish Siham Abu Sitta all the best and hope she and her twin girls are in their new home soon.
Your kitties are too cute. Thanks for the post, Lynn.
