Rest in Peace, Roger Ebert

The Chicago Sun-Times is reporting that legendary film critic Roger Ebert has passed away due to cancer. Just days ago he announced he would be working a reduced rate due to the return of the disease that took his jaw and ability to speak a few years back. Ebert, perhaps the most highly respected film critic in the country, was first diagnosed with cancer in 2002 and leaves behind a long legacy of work that speaks volumes of his illustrious career and fervent professionalism. We here at the Culture Cast offer our sincerest condolences to Ebert’s family, friends, and colleagues. Rest in peace, Roger.

    I just heard about this. His reviews might have gotten a little off-the-rails over the past decade, but he was a legend in how own time.
