Charles-I agree with you but marriage has been redefined. I think households worked better whenRead More roles were more established. We will not see those days again.

Statement from Chicago Mayor Rham Emanuel: “Our whole city learned with sadness today of theRead More passing of Roger Ebert, whose name was synonymous with two things: the movies and Chicago. In a Pulitzer Prize-winning career that spanned more than four decades, thousands of reviews and countless acts of generosity to others, Roger championed Chicago as a center for filmmaking and critiques. With a knowledge of his subject as deep as his love for his wife Chaz, Roger Ebert will be remembered for the strength of his work, respected for his courage in the face of illness, and revered for his contribution to filmmaking and to our city. The final reel of his life may have run through to the end, but his memory will never fade.” http://www.suntimes.com/news/19276180-418/chicago-nation-reacts-to-passing-of-roger-ebert.html

Illinois Govenor Pat Quinn: “I was very saddened to hear today that my good friend RogerRead More Ebert has passed away. I – along with the people of Illinois – offer condolences to his wife Chaz, with whom I had the privilege of spending some time just last week. Even in recent years when illness robbed him of his ability to speak, the mere act of raising his thumb brought auditoriums full of people to their feet in applause. One of my best memories was getting a ‘thumbs-up’ from Roger in 2011 when I proclaimed ‘Roger Ebert Day’ at Ebertfest in Champaign. Roger Ebert was Everyman with a cinematographer’s eye and an artist’s passion. His unique gift was the ability to communicate with everyday people about all kinds of movies and ultimately, the real values of life. He was one of our best-known and most respected journalists, a winner of the Pulitzer Prize as a Chicago Sun-Times film critic, and a proud and generous graduate of the University of Illinois where he began his journalism career at the Daily Illini." http://www.suntimes.com/news/19276180-418/chicago-nation-reacts-to-passing-of-roger-ebert.html

I can say this, if Roger Ebert gave a movie thumbs down, I went to see it. Only because I was aRead More young wipper snapper. In my ripe age of 40 (or 39 something) I will truly miss a Chicago icon such as him. Every time I would watch Gene and Roger I felt I was with them at the Highland Park movie theater. Thanks for the great memories! My condolences to his family, friends, and fans:( :)
