Michael Moore establishes 'rebel' scholarship

Go, Michael Moore! The eternal troublemaker announced this week the establishment of the "Michael Moore Freedom of Speech Scholarship" at California State University, San Marcos - a total of $5,000 will be given out each year to students "who have done the most to fight for issues of student rights by standing up to the administration." CSU-SM, for those who might not remember, was the school which abruptly revoked Moore's invitation to speak last year, because of pressure from school-related conservative groups. Moore ended up holding a rally off-campus, attended by over 10,000 people, and announced then the upcoming creation of a "hellraiser" scholarship; the news this week is simply Moore following through on the promise.
