Roger Ebert is writing some of the best stuff on the web at the moment. For a good example check out this article about the hotel he used to stay at when he was in London. You might also want to check out this wonderful profile of him in Esquire.
He just posted a wonderful rant on the privatization of government services. You really need to read it. It’s one of the best condemnations of free market fundamentalism that I’ve read recently.
