    Michael Moore is not very subtle, I think we can all agree on that after watching his documentary 'Bowling for Columbine'. The movie starts off with showing what happened at the shooting at Columbine High School; two of its students went into the cafeteria with guns in their pockets and just randomly shot other students. Michael Moore talks to two 'survivors' of the shooting and tries to do something about the fact that you can buy ammunition in about any K-Mart just around the corner. But that isn't really what Michael Moore wanted to achieve by making this documentary. His main goal is, I

    Strike and Spare Conspicuously tucked away behind a small strip mall is Stelton Lanes. There is a sign for it out front by the main road, which is a gigantic bowling pin that reads “Stelton Lanes” in 5 foot, blue, cursive lettering. Yet, if you’re not careful you can easily miss it.

The outside walls are a mix betwe

As I walked into Holiday Bowl, I noticed red and yel
