U of M student government invites Michael Moore to speak.

The University of Memphis Student Government Association is looking to liven up its list of speakers this fall with an appearance by filmmaker and political activist Michael Moore.

Justin Lawhead, assistant dean of Student Affairs, referred all questions to the university's communications department, where administrators were involved Tuesday in meetings on the subject. At press-time, department employee Matt Timberlake confirmed that an invitation had been extended to Moore for a fall appearance. Timberlake said that the invitation was an SGA idea. Details will be forthcoming if Moore accepts.

Moore's latest documentary, Fahrenheit 9/11, examines President Bush's motives for waging war in Iraq, the relationship between the Bush family and Saudi royalty, and the administration's handling of the events leading up to and following the September 11th attacks.
