While looking for information about Michael Moore’s upcoming movie “Fahrenheit 9/11” on the Internet, I was directed to a site called MoveAmericaForward. The purpose of the site was to attack Moore by urging people to phone, send e-mails and letters to persuade theater-owners to refuse to show the movie. WHOSIS, a searchable database, revealed that a GOP consultation firm, Russo Marsh & Rogers, set up MoveAmericaForward. A short time later, the name of the Russo firm was “disappeared” from WHOSIS — they obviously don’t want publicity about their smear campaign.
The Republicans must really be desperate, when they have to hire a public relations firm to try to prevent the public from viewing a movie. Perhaps they are afraid that people who have only seen or read government-approved “news” about the Bush administration will now discover the truth.
Remembering Andy Kieley
Thank you, Aaron, for the well written and insightful article on Andy Kieley. He touched many lives and part of his legacy will be the way in which his vast circle of friends live their lives out. He carried an aura of honesty and compassion which was unusual for someone of his age and experience. This was understandable if you had ever met his parents and family. Science tells us that the brightest stars burn out the fastest.
This must be so. Rest in peace Andy. I will think of you often.
