    This is just the ticket 

    Want a free ticket to a hot movie? Ohioblog thought so. Ohioans love free stuff.

    Ohioblog is ineligible for one of the 125 giveaway tickets to see Fahrenheit 9/11, Michael Moore's not-so-affectionate look at President Bush, commander-in-chief. Moviegoers between the ages of 18 and 30 are invited to a 4:45 p.m. Thursday screening at the Cedar Lee Theater (Cedar and Lee Roads in Cleveland Heights), courtesy of two anonymous donors, one of whom is 84, about Ohioblog's age.

    The flick also is popular in, of all places, Iraq. The Christian Science Monitor's Ann Scott Tyson reports that many service personnel are seeing the movie.

    ``Everyone's watching it,'' a Marine corporal in Ramadi told Tyson. ``It's shaping a lot of people's image of Bush.''

    The corporal's movie venue isn't exactly the Cedar Lee. He is stationed at an outpost that is being mortared by insurgents daily.

    In addition, he did not receive at his viewing, as will Cedar Lee's 125 young guests, free popcorn and soft drinks, also courtesy of the anonymous donors.

    Oh, to be young again and Fahrenheit 9/11 eligible.
