The latest update on Roger Ebert's health was printed in the SunTimes today. He says that despite setbacks he is feeling better every day. He had hoped to be back in a few weeks but will need more time getting his voice back in working condition.
The bad news, then, is that we are still going to be stuck with the guest critics on that Roeper Without Ebert show on the weekends for a while longer. The good news, though, is that Ebert is writing some more these days. In fact he has a new book coming out. It is called Your Movie Sucks, and it's a compilation of old movie reviews. It's the second Ebert book devoted to reviews of films that he trashed in print and gave "thumbs-down" to. It should keep his devoted readers happy until he comes back to full health.
Sort of befits Ebert to release a book like that right now--- he must be in a cranky mood after all he's been through.
