On John Hughes

This summer has been especially hard on icons from the seventies and eighties.  While reading through the headlines, I discovered that John Hughes, director of such classics (do I use the term classic with movies that came out in the 1980’s?) as Sixteen Candles and The Breakfast Club has died.  I can’t tell you how many times we watched The Breakfast Club on grainy VHS tapes while we were supposed to be sleeping at slumber parties.

RIP   John Hughes
