RIP Roger Ebert: here's hoping you're enjoying 'Citizen Kane’ and vanilla Häagen-Dazs ice cream,

Turns out the whole damn week has been about death. And cancer. And living well.

Roger Ebert died yesterday at 70. He had thyroid cancer.

Thyroid cancer cost him two things he loved: eating and talking. He suffered through surgeries and treatments, the suffering and indignities that cancer brings. Yet, he became more fierce, writing more about movies than ever before, exploiting Twitter and blogs.

Robert Ebert was a gift to us all. Cancer sucks.

The New York Times has a lovely obituary. Esquire has a classic interview.
