Don't you think that's a bit... superficial?
Every job that requires creativity will always tap into the creativity of the person with the job. And the thing about one person's creativity is that no one else has it.
Not everyone is a critic, and some critics shine brighter than others in the hearts of men. Roger Ebert was one of the brighter ones, because his creativity was easily recognizable. It is the creativity that is expressed by his unique and equally fantastic person that we are naught to let go of easily; little difference would be made in terms of our mourning if he was creative in, say, music instead of writing.
I'm certain the above response will be misunderstood, but that's the best I can put it at the moment. Forgive me if you will.
