I was so sad to hear he passed away. Thanks for sharing those two links - I loved #8 on Ebert's list. :) And I think the Lean In link was good too - why isn't it enough to just go to work, do a good job, and then go home? I'm with the author, when I leave work, I LEAVE WORK. I am, admittedly, not an ambitious person and maybe I would be more satisfied in my job if I were. However, this mediocre job allows me a lot of freedom that I might otherwise not have if I were trying to climb the corporate ladder. Even though I gripe about my job, I am thankful that it allows me to go home and be present with my family.

The news clips of him were just so sad. Ironic that both of those men died with such terrible cancer cases.
