Kudos to American farmer

According to something I read, and now cannot find, the Crawford TX area farmer (or rancher?) who made this delivery, left a note for Michael Moore: "One pile of sh*t deserves another."

Reuters:  Filmmaker Michael Moore abruptly canceled plans to turn up for a screening of his scathing anti-Bush documentary, "Fahrenheit 9/11," in the president's local town on Wednesday without offering any explanation.

HAVANA (AFP) - American filmmaker Michael Moore's Bush-bashing "Fahrenheit 9/11" will play on Cuban public television, potentially increasing the temperature of Havana's feverish media offensive against President George W. Bush and his policies. 

The film is already being screened to great critical acclaim in 120 movie theaters across the island, but television will bring it directly to Cuban living rooms.

In his latest salvo against his northern neighbor, President Fidel Castro dedicated an hour and a half of a speech Monday to Bush's past alcohol consumption and his "hot-headed, fundamentalist mind."
