Dear Mr. Moore,

I enjoyed watching Fahrenheit 9/11 and wish you well in your work. I notice that your film's global box-office receipts have now topped $200 million ( source: http://www.boxofficemojo.com/movies/?id=fahrenheit911.htm ).

Might I enquire how you plan to spend your share of the profits?

If I may, I should also like to draw your attention to the recent announcement by ZNet ( http://www.zmag.org/ZNET.htm ), warning that its very existence is under threat unless it receives an urgent injection of capital. The site's homepage features a personal appeal by Noam Chomsky:

"It is of inestimable importance, in my judgment, that Z and ZNet continue to flourish and expand, not to mention their growing video efforts and incomparable media school, arguably the most exciting and instructive I have ever encountered. Again, I do not think it is possible to exaggerate the stakes. I hope that all of us who are committed to resisting and reversing the powerful currents of reaction and oppression and violence, and showing that another world is indeed possible, will contribute as best we can to ensure that the remarkable achievements of Z and ZNet will be carried forward."

In the interests of everybody working for progressive change in the Western world, perhaps you could see your way to helping them out.

Best wishes,

PS Should you ever find yourself running short on inspiration and long on cash, my concept staff and I have come up with an intriguing little number which you might like to consider. It's called Media Lens: The Movie, and what with sequels (Media Lens: The Movie, Part 2), prequels (Aaronovitch and Phillips, aka The Clone Wars) and spinoffs (Message Board: The Soap), we reckon it could keep you and about 304 others in champagne and spaghetti for life. Do contact me if you're interested.
