For some reason, I just Freudian slipped and typed "comedian Michael Moore" instead of "filmmaker Michael Moore".  I don't know what that was all about - but maybe he *should* try to transition into stand-up comedy. Maybe he'd do more good away from the didactica of documentary. We'll see, I guess, when the Moore-produced Traverse City Film Festival launches July 28. Moore, as festival committee chairman, is working to bring classic G and PG-rated films such as Rebel Without a Cause to a 49-foot screen on the Michigan waterfront. None of his own films will play on the festival program - in fact Moore promised that the festival will be "nonpartisan and dedicated solely to promoting art and culture."
