Like many personal blogs of its era, this blog is moribund, a casualty of what we might call "the Facebook effect." However, as of late 2015, two things are clear: (1) The Indie Web is a thing, and (2) the re-decentralization of the web is a thing. So who knows? 2016 2017 2018 (!) could be the year this blog rises from its own ashes. Stay tuned!

Roger Ebert is not just that large dude who reviews movies on the teevee. His printed reviews are generally brilliant, and when he skewers an awful movie, he is frequently hilarious.

The thing you really notice about Ebert after a while is that he is a real writer. The man could write convincingly about anything. Now for the treat: Sometimes Ebert gets worked up about the state of the world and writes an opinion piece, like this one in which he just eviscerates John Ashcroft.

(Crap. The last three words of the previous paragraph probably just got me on some damn Justice Department watchlist.)
