Roger Ebert’s not a pansy
From the National Post:
Q. Is the SARS epidemic going to alter your plans to attend the Toronto film festival this fall? I’ve been attending the festival in Toronto every year since 1994, but as much as I love it, if SARS is still a major threat, I’m gonna have to pass. (John Kerfoot, Grosse Pointe Park, Mich.) A. Of course I’ll be there. Especially now that the World Health Organization has announced that “all known chains of transmission have been broken.” Why didn’t they ever point out that even at the height of the epidemic, you had a much better chance of being mugged than catching SARS? Of course, in Toronto, you don’t have much chance of being mugged, either.
