It was startling to learn during the last session of the death of John Hughes -- one of the most beloved writer/directors of my generation, particularly for his mid-'80s troika of "Sixteen Candles," "The Breakfast Club" and "Ferris Bueller's Day Off," but I'm also too caught up in press tour to really put my thoughts on the man into words. Fortunately, the good people at Throwing Things have done a fine job of saying many of the things I would have. So go read them. And, if you want, feel free to include your favorite John Hughes movie memory (or memories). For me, it's either "Ed! Ferris Bueller on Line 2!" or "You're not dying, you just can't think of anything good to do." But that's just me.
