    Holy crap.

    I saw where the cancer had returned, but I didn't think it was that advanced.

    He just said, what, yesterday he was taking a "leave of presence"? And that was supposed to be merely cutting back on writing 300-plus movie reviews while he fought cancer.

    Awful. Read that last post he made on a "leave of presence". Still had a lot of cool stuff in the works. Great writer I always enjoyed. RIP.

    I tried to access his final column and was getting an 502 error. Guessing everyone's flooding the site right now. :(

    RIP to a true American legend.
