Film critic Roger Ebert wrote a recent column about his cancer and related surgery which has left him without a voice:
"I was told photos of me in this condition would attract the gossip papers. So what?
I have been very sick, am getting better and this is how it looks. I still have my brain and my typing fingers."
He's still going to go to his annual Overlooked Film Festival.
Bravo, Roger Ebert!
