Farewell, John Hughes

Pardon the break in postings -- I spent the last little while watching this nine-minute tribute to the eight films John Hughes wrote and directed, among them Sixteen Candles, Pretty in Pink, The Breakfast Club, Ferris Bueller's Day Off, Weird Science (co-starring Fort Worth's Bill Paxton) and Planes, Trains & Automobiles. Because, you see, he died today in New York City at the age of 59. Hughes, who long ago stopped making movies, suffered a heart attack.
