Mike Kitson

I was reading Michael Moore's "Idiot Nation" when to my surprise (as I'm a fan of his), I just gave up.

Though the subject matter isn't great1, (it's a depressing read) and the contents is nothing new or that I couldn't figure out, the overiding desire to stop reading came about because Mike doesn't know how to write. He's rubbish at it, and thats a shame.
And that last sentence is an understatement.

Meanwhile in other news the comedian Daniel Kitson was articulate and quite entertaining (always helpful for one in his profession).

1. Though the MM has a disclaimer (near the beginning of the essay) stating his love for his country et cetera, I still feel its has an anti-american vibe. I could understand the MM's desire to highlight the problems in his homeland in hope for betterment. However his decision to entitle it Idiot Nation and rib Americans panders to his global (non-US) audience and the general decadence of a country's education system is not solely applicable to the US. I feel he seems fixated with an easy target.
