Here Comes Trouble by Michael MooreI had an unusually large-sized head, though this was not uncommon for a baby in the Midwest. The craniums in our part of the country were designed to leave a little extra room for the brain to grow in case one day we found ourselves exposed to something we didnt understand, like a foreign language, or a salad.
Michael Moore-Oscar-winning filmmaker, bestselling author, the nations unofficial provocateur laureate-is back, this time taking on an entirely new role, that of his own meta-Forest Gump.
Breaking the autobiographical mode, he presents twenty-four far-ranging, irreverent, and stranger-than-fiction vignettes from his own early life. One moment hes an eleven-year-old boy lost in the Senate and found by Bobby Kennedy; and in the next, hes inside the Bitburg cemetery with a dazed and confused Ronald Reagan. Fast-forwarding to 2003, he stuns the world by uttering the words We live in fictitious times . . . with a fictitious president in place of the expected Id like to thank the Academy.
And none of that even comes close to the night the friendly priest at the seminary decides to show him how to perform his own exorcism.
Capturing the zeitgeist of the past fifty years, yet deeply personal and unflinchingly honest, HERE COMES TROUBLE takes readers on an unforgettable, take-no-prisoners ride through the life and times of Michael Moore. No one will come away from this book without a sense of surprise about the Michael Moore most of us didnt know. Alternately funny, eye-opening, and moving, its a book he has been writing-and living-his entire life.

America is in trouble. We face four major challenges on which our future depends, and we are failing to meet them—and if we delay any longer, soon it will be too late for us to pass along the American dream to future generations. Friedman, one of our most influential columnists, and Michael Mandelbaum, one of our leading foreign policy thinkers, offer both a wake-up call and a call to collective action. They analyze the four challenges we face—globalization, the revolution in information technology, the nation's chronic deficits, and our pattern of excessive energy consumption—and spell out what we need to do now to sustain the American dream and preserve American power in the world. They explain how the end of the Cold War blinded the nation to the need to address these issues seriously, and how China's educational successes, industrial might, and technological prowess remind us of the ways in which "that used to be us. And yet Friedman and Mandelbaum believe that the recovery of American greatness is within reach.

Most of them were or somethings, and Moore, myself and my girlfriend were by far the oldest ones there. A Washington-based reporter for the Irish Times , at the event to write a profile on Moore, paid close attention and typed on her laptop throughout.

Moore immediately began riffing on remarks from the crowd, which by the time he began had ingested large quantities of beer and wine. He talked of how he got into filmmaking through his friend Kevin Rafferty, who made an incredible movie in the s called Atomic Cafe that documented the culture that grew up around nuclear weapons during the Cold War see the film in its entirety here. Rafferty had told this otherwise serious story with humor and wit, something Moore had never seen before in a documentary.
