The balcony is closed

Incredible piece from Roger Ebert saying goodbye to his beloved show of 33 years:
Now the time has come to awake from my daydream. That's all history--treasured history, but past and gone, all the same. I remember what Gene said to me in that dressing room before the Carson Show: "Roger, we're a couple of kids from the Midwest. We don't belong here."
And that youtube video is great, too. But watch it after you read Roger's piece, so you make sure you understand that it doesn't reveal a "dark side" between them or something, but rather the reality of two lifelong friends.
