A Thumbs Up For Roger Ebert

Kottke notes that some people have suggested Roger Ebert should stay away from his own festival, due to his post cancer treatment appearance.

Roger says to hell with that. Now, I've never been a huge fan of Ebert's work in general, but good for him. If he feels he has the mind (and, as he puts it, thumb) to attend ... well anything at all ... then dear golly sweetcakes he should. The only shame would be on those who would turn a cancer survivor's appearance into a tabloid article. Culture shouldn't want to put you back into a closet just because you aren't pretty.

And hey, Ebert is attending the most excellent Rehabilitation Institute of Chicago - same place that gave me therapy for my, well somewhat ambigous neck-arm-wrist maladay. Have fun in Lincoln Park, Roger - the weather is getting nice out there.
