Roger Ebert has more surgery today
We've all been waiting a long time for Roger Ebert to come back to his seat on Ebert & Roeper, and now it looks like we might have to wait a while longer.
Ebert writes in a message on his web site that he has gone in for more surgery today. He doesn't go into details about the procedure, but he says that he hopes that this will "solve some problems I've been living with." He won't be in the hospital as long as he was before, but it's not day surgery either. He'll be in there long enough to have prepared some film reviews and other columns in advance so they can run while he's away.
By the way, a side note: in the message, Ebert says he'll be "in hospital." When did we all turn British? I've been noticing this a lot the past few years. People are saying "in hospital" instead of "in the hospital" and "go to prom" instead of "go to the prom." Maybe the phrases changed when I wasn't paying attention (I also find it odd when people end sentences with "come with").
Hurry back to your seat Roger. Get well soon.
