FURTHER 'MOORE'--With gleaming Oscar in tow, director Michael Moore addressed a sellout crowd in Strong Auditorium on March 26. Moore's visit, shrouded in controversy over the filmmaker's antiwar statements during the recent Academy Awards ceremony, drew media coverage as well as protestors who agreed and disagreed with Moore. In his talk, the director encouraged audience members to be active in the political process and defended his Oscar statement, saying dissent was a crucial part of any democracy. "I don't have all the answers," said Moore, "but I do have the right and the responsibility to pose the questions."
