35. I have been well aware
Edited on Fri Jan-08-10 10:31 PM by Libertas1776
of all the troubles he has been going through and its been saddening. However, his spirit and optimistic outlook is truly inspiring. And reading this article sure has made me think of crisp cold colas and grilled cheese sandwiches of long, long ago. Bless ya Mr. Ebert and keep on writing and reviewing.
