Ebert Gives “Under God” One Thumb Down

Roger Ebert is not just that large dude who reviews movies on the teevee. His printed reviews are generally brilliant, and when he skewers an awful movie, he is frequently hilarious.

The thing you really notice about Ebert after a while is that he is a real writer. The man could write convincingly about anything. Now for the treat: Sometimes Ebert gets worked up about the state of the world and writes an opinion piece, like this one in which he just eviscerates John Ashcroft.

(Crap. The last three words of the previous paragraph probably just got me on some damn Justice Department watchlist.)
