Thank you for going on this journey with me. I’ll see you at the movies.
Shock is the word that comes to mind when I heard the news that Roger Ebert had died yesterday. I always admired his work as a journalist, reporter and film critic. His book, Life Itself: A Memoir, is an intriguing look back at his amazing journey from growing up in Urbana, IL, to becoming a cultural icon.
Godspeed, Roger. Give us ‘two thumbs up’ when you meet up with Gene Siskel up there.
