"Michael Moore to Receive the John Steinbeck Award

The family of John Steinbeck, the Nobel Prize-winning author of "The Grapes of Wrath" and other American classics, and the Center for Steinbeck Studies, have announced that they are giving their prestigious John Steinbeck Award to Michael Moore. They're making their official announcement today and I thought you'd like to see the statement they've released to the press. Steinbeck's son, Thomas, will present the award to Mike next month at a ceremony at San Jose State University (the public is invited to attend). Thomas Steinbeck had this to say this morning: "Michael Moore is a courageous man and a great selection for the John Steinbeck Award. My father would have loved him; my father was the Michael Moore of his time."

Eh, I've only seen "Roger & Me" and "Bowling for Columbine." "Roger" was decent, "Bowling" was crap. Batting .500 might work for baseball but not so much for films :D

edit: Also, "Bowling" had a lot of pretty dishonest stuff in it, so that leads me to be immediately suspicious of his other work.
