John Hughes: 1950 - 2009
The man may be dead, but for so many of us, those movies will never die. Without lamps, there'd never be light. Without John Hughes, there'd never be Neo-maxi-zoom-dweebies.
Hughes will be missed, but his premature death offers this heady reminder: "Life moves pretty fast. You don't stop and look around once in a while, you could miss it."
Be well, Mr. Hughes, where ever you are.
