Roger Ebert Thyroid Cancer

I was listening to O&A on XM on our way back home from KC on Sunday and they were discussing Roger Ebert's recent appearance on Oprah...then went into how he had Thyroid Cancer and had to have his entire jaw removed, voice box, etc. I had NO idea that he had even had cancer. Of course, if anyone is familiar with O&A they totally made the whole thing a joke which disgusted me....I love their show because they are so avante garde, but I felt this was taking it too far. Especially for a man who gave so much to American Cinema. I think it is so inspiring, the way Roger spoke of his battle, his wife, and how his life will continue. Pretty amazing man.

He's been battling cancer for years. I have really enjoyed his film writing, and I agree he is an inspiration to others. In film school, I had Leonard Maltin as a professor for one class, and he always spoke of Roger Ebert as a legend in film critique.
