TIFF Tiff Update! Via MCN, we've learned that Roger Ebert has posted to his blog regarding the now-notorious thwacking he received at the hands of NY Post critic Lou Lumenick. Titled "An Incident at Toronto," Ebert confirms the NY Daily News account of the dustup, but adds that he wishes it had never been made public. "This whole matter was embarrassing, because it drew attention to me and invited pity, which makes me cringe...in one way I feel sorry for him. He had no idea who was behind him when he smacked me. Now it looked like he was picking on poor me. I have had my problems, but I promise you I am plenty hearty enough to withstand a smack, and quite happy, after the smack, to tap him again. I had to see those subtitles." [Roger Ebert]
