"Roger in hospital with hip fracture (tricky disco dance moves) but he is doing well, asking for computer, will probably tweet," wrote Chaz Ebert on Thursday. Sure enough, Rog gained access and was able to blast out his 30,028th tweet: "Yes, fracture. But no surgery needed. Details follow. :)" Doctors are assessing when the 70-year-old film critic can head home. Two thumbs up to this couple's tag-team info dissemination.
