CAUSE FOR CHEERFULNESS. A few evenings ago, Michael Moore did a half hour on Sean Hannity's show. Mr Moore wore business attire, and the two entertainers had a cordial and frank exchange of views. At times they talked past each other, and both missed opportunities to present stronger intellectual arguments for their cases. Not once, however, did either revert to the formulaic cliche-slinging that opinion television too often becomes. Apparently the two have had previous cordial encounters.

SECOND SECTION. More of the same tonight, with each man trying to goad the other but neither reverting to formula.
