I'm still shocked and saddened by the news of Roger Ebert's death. I know, I know, he was fighting cancer, and the odds were against him. It's just that it has only been a couple days since he announced his leave of absence. Also, he had been very active on the internet, writing reviews for the Chicago Sun-Times and updating his blog, Facebook Page, Twitter account, and his newsletter.
