Roger Ebert, always quick with a quip, has a point.And he’s getting savaged for it. Maybe it’s not necessarily one appreciated by a large number of people, but the death of Ryan Dunn (and his passenger) should be examined through this lens, at least for the sake of perspective: If he had survived but his passenger hadn’t, the reaction to this story would be totally different. This is not to say that Dunn’s death isn’t sad and a total bummer for his family, his friends and his fans (us included), but Ebert has a point, one which even Perez Hilton’s commenters seem to agree with: The evidence suggests he drove drunk and ended two lives, one of them his own. Perhaps Ebert struck a little close to home. But ultimately, someone who needed to hear the message Ebert’s selling — don’t drink and drive — will hear it and heed it.
