Michael Moore reschedules appearance, relocates to Carrier Dome - The Daily Orange - News

Michael Moore reschedules appearance: "Love him or hate him, students can experience Michael Moore firsthand - and much sooner than expected.

Moore, the left-leaning writer and creator of the controversial documentary 'Fahrenheit 9/11,' was originally scheduled to speak at Syracuse University on Oct. 17 but will now be speaking in the Carrier Dome Sept. 22 at 7:30 p.m. due to a scheduling conflict with the filmmaker's election-season tour.

'Every seat should be filled on September 22 - whether you want to challenge or cheer Michael Moore you are guaranteed to be charged up for change - in and out of the White House,' said Kenny Rahtz, a representative for Moore.

Moore's appearance is part of the 2004 Syracuse Symposium, an intellectual festival hosted by The College of Arts and Sciences. The theme of this fall's symposium is humor, and Moore was specifically selected to show people the power it can have, said Eric Holzwarth, assistant dean of The College of Arts and Sciences.

'Humor is a mechanism to say things we normally couldn't say,' Holzwarth said. 'Michael Moore is a master who engages his audience. Humor is key to what he does.'"
