Godspeed, Roger Ebert

Roger Ebert, announcing a “leave of presence” to fight a recurrence of cancer:

Typically, I write over 200 reviews a year for the Sun-Times that are carried by Universal Press Syndicate in some 200 newspapers. Last year, I wrote the most of my career, including 306 movie reviews, a blog post or two a week, and assorted other articles. I must slow down now, which is why I’m taking what I like to call “a leave of presence.”

His prolificacy and eloquence are a constant inspiration for me.
