• In Response to: An update on the editor's eyesight (Christian Clemmensen)

It was confirmed by doctors this morning that my vitrectomy last week was successful. It'll be two or three weeks before we can know just how much vision in that eye was lost, but the prognosis is good. At the moment, the distortion caused by the gas bubble and new fluids filling the eye are making it somewhat useless, but by next Friday I should be able to resume most normal activities. So disaster has been averted... again!

I'm starting to resume my writing schedule, and some regular re-write work and a few new reviews will be finished as early as this weekend.

I want to thank all of those who have e-mailed me with kind words over the past two weeks. I did not anticipate hearing from so many readers (over 250), and it's heartening to know that Stella and I have your support. It's a little frightening, though, to learn that many Filmtracks readers also suffer from similar retinal or vitreal problems.

I had to chuckle at the one, inevitable moron who e-mailed with the response: "God has struck your vision because of your refusal to accept the Lord Jesus Christ as your savior." It's priceless and, given this site's history, predictable.

Thanks again to all,
