Not all of UA eager for Michael Moore

By C.J. Karamargin

Controversial film director Michael Moore will speak in Tucson on Oct. 11, two days before Arizona plays host to the final debate between President Bush and John Kerry.

Moore, whose Bush-bashing documentary "Fahrenheit 9/11" has grossed nearly $118 million since it was released in June, is scheduled to speak at the University of Arizona's McKale Center at 7 p.m.

Some student Republicans aren't happy about Moore's appearance, fearing he will use his remarks to campaign against Bush. Pete Seat, state chairman of Arizona College Republicans, wants a conservative speaker "of equal name recognition" brought in for balance.

But an organizer defended the speech as fitting with the university's mission of educating and informing students. "Our mission is to engage as many students as possible," said Fernando Ascencio, the director of the speakers board of the Associated Students of the University of Arizona.

ASUA is strictly nonpartisan, Ascencio said. As evidence, he noted that David T. Hardy, author of "Michael Moore Is a Big Fat Stupid White Man," will speak on campus Oct. 7 - two days after "Fahrenheit 9/11" is released on DVD.

Moore is normally paid $40,000 for speeches, Ascencio said, but agreed to talk at UA for $27,500.

Tickets for Moore cost $5 and go on sale today for UA students and faculty, and Sept. 29 for everyone else. Call ASUA at 621-4671 for more information.
