More Moore

Michael Moore is reportedly planning to make a film on the pharmaceutical industry, and he's going to call it Sicko. (No self-referential irony there, I fear.) And Big Pharm is worried, with six of the top companies in that sector apparently having issued a warning to their employees to beware of "a scruffy guy in a baseball cap".

I can already imagine the gags. Moore stalking senior executives asking them to pop one of the pills they make. Moore following a Big Pharm victim around and stooping with her to keep the camera on her face when she bends down to throw up. And so on. Frankly, I can't see what the companies are worried about. Moore's last target was George W Bush, and he ended up getting more votes than any US president in history. Pfizer's stock should be rising with this news.
