US Army General George Casey "doesn't remember" if the US downplayed Iraqi civilian casualty figures. Is he really too old for his job, or is he covering up for someone? According to Pentagon spokesman Colonel Dave Lapan, "over the years, it has been impossible for the various organizations to come to agreement on a specific figure". Michael Moore suggests that someone stop the Colonel before he lies again. Recently, Michael received the John Steinbeck Award. John Steinbeck once said: "Courage is more important than anything else in the world, if you want to tell the truth". Thomas Steinbeck, the son of John Steinbeck presented Michael Moore with the award. This award is only given to those people who have the courage to say the truth, regardless of who disdains that knowledge. In his acceptance speech, Michael Moore said: "How much longer are we going to look out from our kitchen window, pull back the curtain a little, and see the Ryder truck pulling up to our neighbor's house and see them thrown out of a home by a bank which doesn't even have the piece of paper that is the mortgage? Good question! During his acceptance speech, Mike read passages from John Steinbeck's "Travels with Charley" and "The Grapes of Wrath".
