Me and My Buddy Michael Moore? Ha!!

I don't want to get political on this blog, so I won't. But I think most people would agree that it's hard to avoid politics when mentioning the name Michael Moore. If the name doesn't ring a bell, perhaps you'll recognize some of his infamous movies: Fahrenheit 9/11, Sicko, and Bowling for Columbine, three of the top five highest-grossing documentaries of all time. So anyway, I was perusing a magazine today that highlights some books that will be sold in foreign markets during the next 6 months, and my name was listed on the table of contents! Cool, right? I had no idea it was being marketed overseas, so I was ecstatic. But I had to laugh when I read the name right below mine on the list....yep, Michael Moore. I'd never really thought of it before, but Mr. Moore and I share a capital-M in common at the start of our last names! The similarities between us probably end there, but hey, it's something. I never imagined I would ever see my name in print next to Mr. Moore's, but for better or worse, I think it's hilarious.

By the way, it's worth noting that Stephenie Meyer is on the top of the M-list. She's everywhere these days. In fact, I just heard that she topped 7 gazillion books sold (and no matter how you measure it, that's a lot). Way to go Stephenie! My wife loves your books...and I intend to read them too (someday).

Okay, so he's a BIT abrasive. But he does have some points, don't you think?
