It's a strike! Michael Moore is on a roll like a bowling ball. First he got the heavy-duty celeb profile treatment on Feb. 16's 60 MInutes. Then he pocketed a French Oscar (a.k.a. the Cesar) for his hit documentary Bowling for Columbine. Then he won the British Book Award for Stupid White Men in London. Now that's what we call momentum. Some or all of it must be to blame for his sudden resurgence on the nonfiction list this week. Stupid White Men, last year's zingy book of rants, blazes back in at No. 2.
