Where is Michael Moore? Not at the Michigan Film Office meeting

By Sue White | The Saginaw News | March 27, 2009

Michael Moore didn't show up.

I had many reasons to look forward to the Michigan Film Office's meeting with its advisory council, held March 19 at Saginaw's Temple Theatre, and catching up with Moore, a council member, was one of them.

Years ago, before he started making films, we worked together on a few projects. The night I remember best was spent at a Chinese restaurant with Amanda McBroom, who wrote the song "The Rose," and Tom Chapin, the late Harry Chapin's brother.

Moore invited me to the "Roger and Me" premiere, and to both of talk-show host Phil Donahue's visits to Flint -- didn't I tell you it was a long time ago? Through it all, Moore was always just a call or two away.
