A star for Uncle Roger

Hooray for Hollywood: Roger Ebert is being honored with a star on Tinsel Town's Walk of Fame this coming June.

I'm delighted for the dean of American film critics, the only writer ever to win a Pulitzer Prize exclusively for film criticism. Uncle Roger was the man who inspired me to want to write about film, and more than any other factor was responsible for my career as a staff writer, and now associate editor, for the 'Net's best-written DVD review site, DVD Verdict. (You are getting your daily dose of film and TV analysis at the Verdict, aren't you? If not, shame on you.)

I have to wonder, though, how great an honor a Walk of Fame star is when Ryan Seacrest got one before you.
