Sick of Roger Ebert grief

Whenever a celebrity dies, the media goes nuts, but so does the Amerian populace. Last night Piers Morgan was asking William Baldwin (the major cultural figure), of all people, for his thoughts on Ebert's death. Several of my friends (and these are all otherwise smart people with college educations) posted a sugary-sweet cartoon of Roger Ebert meeting Gene Siskel in movie seats on a cloud to watch a sunset ("Saved you some popcorn!"), as if (a) they were best friends who dreamed of being with one another in the next life (though they respected each other, they had a very prickly and testy relationship); and (b) as if Roger Ebert were going to the Christian heaven (he was an avowed atheist).
