Eddy Gurge: I guess reading the entire article is a lost art.
What_Would_Jimi_Do: i stopped caring what this guys were saying after 1987, when ebert was so harsh on full metal jacket.
JosephFinn: BTW, I'd like to note that Gene Weingarten is not the 2-bit person in this. Gene Weingarten has two, really REALLY well-deserved Pulitzers for feature writing. For instance, for Fatal Distraction: Forgetting a Child in the Backseat of a Car Is a Horrifying Mistake. Is It a Crime? (WARNING: this story will make you cry. I don't care if you have no soul. You will still cry.)
gingerjet: Ebert did a lot of fark'd up stuff early in his life and this is all somebody can come up with that's "bad"?/love Ebert
fusillade762: namatad: Chariset: Eddy Gurge: I guess reading the entire article is a lost art.Here's the entire article.Page 1 -- a heck of a lot of throat-clearing about how it's soooo icky to mock the dead, and the writer feels just awful that he's about to tell a story on EbertPage 2 -- author tells his story on Ebert, which is the very definition of a non-story and doesn't make Ebert look bad at all. The end.WHO?some loser who won two pulitzers and felt the need to let us know?YAWNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNHe mentioned his two Pulitzers as an illustration about how you should not mention your Pulitzers.
Triumph: The guy who wrote that nearly incomprehensible essay won TWO Pulitzers? Kill me.
