Now for something a little different

Roger Ebert, renowned movie critic born and raised in our area, wrote this very moving blog post about food evoking memories. He has been suffering from thyroid cancer and numerous surgeries since 2006.

It reminded me so much of when my brother was no longer able to eat.

I have so much respect for Roger Ebert. He has not allowed his physical infirmities to control him. His mind and his writing are as cogent as ever, even as cancer has played havoc with his body. A great man.
