The Pen is Mightier Than the Cancer.

Well it looks like our old pal Roger Ebert is back in the cinema saddle to churn out more reviews to movies you should go make up your own damned mind about. I've always had a slight beef with people who make their living off telling other people what is good or not. Especially when it comes to movies. Sure, I'm a critic, but go and see it yourself. Anyway, Ebert, despite several bouts with cancer in his throat, is grabbing his pen and churning out more reviews for us to read in the papers. Good for him I say! It's nice to see people continuing to do what they love and not let something silly like having your neck cut open and evil bio-goop blasted out stand in the way.

However, I can't help but wonder if throat cancer was nature's way of saying "Shut the hell up man. We killed your partner and you're next if you don't watch it."
