    According to Chicago Sun-Times television columnist Robert Feder, Ebert is set to undergo cancer surgery on Friday to remove a cancerous growth on his thyroid. Read the story here.
    Here's to hoping for a speedy recovery.

    All the best to Ebert and his surgery, here's hoping for 100% success. I like to read his reviews each week when they come out.

    I seriously, seriously hope the man makes a full, speedy recovery. He's a cultural resource and a genuine wit. We need him.

    There's a disturbing parallel in that Roger's partner Gene Siskel died of brain cancer. I'm hoping the parallels end there. [​IMG]

    Good luck and quick recovery, Roger. I don't think the movie world could survive long without you.

    Disturbing news. The good news is thyroid cancer is operable and cureable and not nearly as dangeous as what Gene Siskel had. Here's hoping everything turns out OK.

    I NEVER miss an Ebert show...He doesn't know me, but I count him as a friend.

    I hope he reads these messages and knows we are all thinking of him.

    I too hope for a full recovery and that he gets to enjoy many more years of life and watching movies!

    Plus, for purely selfish reasons, I wish he gets well so I get to enjoy his reviews for a long time to come.

    I hope the surgery goes well.

    Ebert is the only film critic I know of that has such a wide range of liked films. His reviews are also extremely entertaining and informative.

    ...I'm hoping this cancer wasn't caused by some of the crappy movies Ebert had to review!

    The film world's already lost Siskel, and I don't want to imagine it without Ebert either.

    Here's hoping for a quick recovery.
