I love Roger Ebert. It’s true. I visit his site every Friday to read the new movie reviews, even though it’ll be six months before any of them come out in London. I love his “Answer Man” section where he answers movie questions readers send in. And his “Great Movies” essays remind me why I wanted to be a film major in the first place. I can’t really explain why I like the guy; I guess it’s because I tend to agree with him a lot. It just seems like we’d be friends, you know? Anyway, I’ve often caught myself wishing that I knew what “Eeb” (that’s what I call him in my mind; yes, I’m a freak) thinks about music or politics or television or sports, etc. Every now and then he posts a special essay on his website that does just that. The latest one is all about the Presidential election and why, in his mind, George Bush is an idiot. Did I mention that I love Roger Ebert? 🙂

    Hello Kristine,

    Yeah, I like him too (LOVE him sometimes). I thought I was some sort of freak or something but, hey, guess not. 🙂 Anyway, do you still have access to his essay on the election. I didn’t know he wrote one. But I understand if you can’t find it.

    All the best and nice meeting you (sort of).


    ps. Congrads on your marriage 2 years ago. I’m only 20 so I don’t know about that stuff. Good luck!
