The Brave Road Back

The man in the picture is barely recognizable as esteemed film critic Roger Ebert. After numerous operations over the past year to save his life from the ravages of cancer, Ebert is finally showing his new face to the world.

"I ain’t a pretty boy no more," he says, jovially mimicking the line from Raging Bull.

I have missed Mr. Ebert so much in the last year... it is great to see him back in public, despite his current appearance. Although his jaw may not be intact, judging by the article, his sense of humor is well intact - a la the "Laz-y-critic".

God speed, Roger Ebert.
