Roger Ebert has recurrence of cancer

Did he give Rosie a bad review for "Exit To Eden"?

My mother says once you have cancer it will come back. It may go away for a while but it WILL come back. It sure seems to happen a lot.

"Starting with Rosie O'Donnell. I'm sorry, but I just don't get Rosie O'Donnell. I've seen her in three or four movies now, and she has generally had the same effect on me as fingernails on a blackboard.

"She's harsh and abrupt and staccato and doesn't seem to be having any fun. She looks mean."

But as long as Rosie was actually harsh, abrupt, and mean, then he should be fine, right?

This is jaw dropping.

Sad news. Ebert's a national treasure...yes, even considering 'Beyond the Valley of the Dolls.'

R1, you're mom is dumb. My grandmother had breast cancer in the mid-seventies, it was treated but indeed we were worried. She died three years ago at the age of 91 of dementia and other old-age related ailments. My aunt also had a bout of breast cancer, she died last year of a heart attack after being in remission for 17 years.

Is he still alive. God that old relic sure likes to cling to life doesn't he?

His face looks all wax. He looks worse than Lenin. The real one, not the Beatle.

And MY mother told me that once they cut you open and the air gets to it the cancer spreads even faster!

Sun Times has reported he's died.

Just that on the radio, R10. Wow, that seemed fast.

I had a teacher with whom I was very close to who fought breast cancer for 19 years before succumbing to it. She was first diagnosed at 32. She "beat" it but it returned 5 years later. She had a double mastectomy and it went into remission. After being cancer-free for 7 years, she thought she had finally beat it. She remarried and was happy again. At age 45, the cancer returned. In 2009, she died peacefully in her home at the age of 51.

My sister's MIL fought Non-Hodgkin Lymphoma for 5 years. It went into remission and a couple of years later it came roaring back. She died in excruciating pain in 2011.

r1 is right. At least from my personal experience.

I was trying to get on the Sun Times website, but it's locked up.

The Trib however has the story up front.

Wonder if he offed himself?

Well, he was a big fan of AMOUR.

That was sudden. I'm surprised how shocked and saddened I am over his death.

I didn't always agree with him, but he was a damn good human being, and I always respected him, his work, and his writing.
