    Unhappy Re: RIP: Roger Ebert

    I was saddened to hear this. But the years after his diagnosis and surgery remarkably brought some of his best writing... not so much about movies, but about life.

    His last post: My Leave of Presence
    Thank you. Forty-six years ago on April 3, 1967, I became the film critic for the Chicago Sun-Times. Some of you have read my reviews and columns and even written to me since that time. Others were introduced to my film criticism through the television show, my books, the website, the film festival, or the Ebert Club and newsletter. However you came to know me, I'm glad you did and thank you for being the best readers any film critic could ask for.
    He writes of transitions, but also his plans for the future, and likely did not expect the end to come so soon. I certainly didn't.

    I read his Leave of Presence 2 days ago which added to the shock of his loss a day later. Even those he was receiving cancer treatment he made it sound like it was nothing but a blip on the Richter Scale of health.

    I saw him at Ala Moana Center and gave him the thumbs up when he was here for a film festival.

    They do it to almost anyone to get attention. It would seem as of late that the pastor may be nearing the end. Reports also show that a growing number of younger members are leaving the "church".
