I just want to mark the passing of Roger Ebert with belated thanks to him. I have modeled a great deal of my own writing based on his and I learned more GRE words from him than I can count. His writing served as a great example to me of how one can write clearly and concisely; how one could be simultaneously sophisticated yet approachable.
Lastly, a belated "thank you" for making my question to headlilner to his "Movie Answer Man" column on January 13, 2002.

A. Take it from me: "Lord of the Rings" isn't the best movie of all time. What's reflected is extreme enthusiasm by a lot of fans, who gave it a "10" on the IMDb poll although many of them, individually, might not rate it the best of all films.
From time-to-time I find interesting articles about the state of universities, the field of history, etc. I'll post them here just in case anyone else is interested.
