Robert Feder reports that Sun-Times film critic Roger Ebert is to undergo surgery again to have a cancerous growth removed from his salivary gland. Ebert says that the cancer is not life-threatening, and expects to make a full recovery. Good luck, Roger! Elsewhere in Ebert news, he's listed at #16 on Newcity's annual Lit 50 list of the most influential people in Chicago's literary world.
