I read a blog of his a while back, talking about how much he misses having casual dinner conversations, and how he doesn't really miss food anymore. It was a great piece to read. Anyway, he was on Oprah, and told a lot of the same stories. here's a few clips.

The piece in Esquire is a pretty great read. Ebert is one of the last of his kind in terms of understanding the role of a film critic (or the role of any critic, for that matter) and relaying the necessity of that role to the general public. And even though he's become a big softy when it comes to his rating system these days, as I really think he now goes easier on films he would have panned even 10 years ago, I still really enjoy his reviews.

I've even forgiven him for unleashing Richard Roeper.
