From Bob Kokai:
I have enjoyed watching and reading you since the late 1970's. It has been uncanny how often I have agreed with your reviews. Our taste in movies is very similar. I just wanted to drop an email to say I know you will pull through your recent surgery with flying colors and to wish you the speediest of recoveries. If you don't get back to your keyboard as soon as possible, how in the world am I going to know what movies I want to see? I only trust you!!!
