Moore tickets going fast

Moore tickets going fast: "Growing controversy over liberal filmmaker Michael Moore's national pre-election campus tour hasn't dampened interest at the University of Arizona, where he is slated to appear Oct. 11.

Although two universities recently canceled Moore appearances and alumni have threatened to withhold donations at a third, Associated Students of the University of Arizona reports that tickets to Moore's McKale Center speech are selling briskly. Student body President Alistair Chapman, 22, of Gilbert, said it is part of a series of activities planned earlier this year to engage students in civic life.

'It has been controversial to a degree, but that was expected,' Chapman said. 'We're doing it as part of a political speakers' series, and all ideologies are represented.' "
