    "Borat" Premiere Proves Eventful

    Live animals, technical difficulties and Michael Moore were among the highlights at the premiere of the controversial "Borat Cultural Learnings of America for Make Benefit Glorious Nation of Kazakhstan" last night. After a memorable arrival from the film's star Sasha Baron Cohen on a horse drawn cart driven by two women dressed as Kazakhstan prostitutes, Kris Abel reports that things did not run so smoothly.
