Did Kerry Cheat in First Debate?

"No props, notes, charts, diagrams, or other writings or other tangible things may be brought into the debate by any candidate."

What's Michael Moore Up To?

It seems Michael Moore is turning his camera on drug makers and health unsurers.

""Companies have warned their sales representatives to be on the lookout for camera phones and reports of Moore representatives offering $50,000 to doctors' offices to place hidden cameras or $5,000 to sales representatives willing to be filmed, according to a representative of one drug maker, who asked not to be identified.

"Moore's spokesman would not comment on any production activity or allegations of payments to drug company employees.""
