What a rather lame attack. Dick Cheney also just wrote a book, and I hardly think he did it because [he] "needs" money. Neither men are even close to being poor, and Moore is donating half of his royalties to local libraries. I don't think there are immense riches in writing books to begin with, unless you're Tom Clancy or J. K. Rowling. From the excerpts I've read, Moore's book is quite upfront and honest. Too bad you're too close-minded to see that he's fighting for the little guy and not the corporate welfare queens that I'm sure you're so enamored with.
