Roger Ebert: A real man

From The Huffington Post: Rod Lurie waxes eloquent about Roger Ebert. The money quote: "Not long ago I was talking to my teenage kids about what it was that constituted a 'real man.' I'll tell you this -- you can look at all the masculine toughies you want -- the Ben Roethlisbergers, the Russell Crowes, the David Petraeuses -- but if you want to look at what a man should be -- persevering, honest, a person who manifests his intellect into action -- you need look no further than Roger Ebert." Amen.

Agreed. Roger Ebert could have thrown in the towel, felt sorry for himself, given up long ago. He did not. He is a hero.
