The film critic can't speak nowadays, but he still has plenty to say. It's very well written and worth reading through to the end.
He's gotten into blogging lately. In particular, this post I caught last month about Urbana, the University, and relationships in the early 60's was a fun read.
Out of curiosity I searched for where he grew up in Urbana and found this other post full of memories--it's a few blocks over and down from where I live. It happens to be on street view.
