One thumb down, one finger up for Mariotti

In what has become an increasingly ugly goodbye, Roger Ebert essentially flipped the bird to Jay Mariotti on his way out of the door at the Chicago Sun-Times:

What an ugly way to leave the Sun-Times. It does not speak well for you. Your timing was exquisite. You signed a new contract, waited until days after the newspaper had paid for your trip to Beijing at great cost, and then resigned with only an e-mail.

... On your way out, don't let the door bang you on the ass.

Wow. I'm not a big fan of the way either side is handling this divorce. Someone has to be the grownup here, you know?
