RIP John Hughes

Today, tons of folks who were teens in the 80s are mouring the passing of John Hughes yesterday. I decided rather than write my own post, I would post links to two of the best I have read--one more funny, one more poignant--should you wish to indulge:

And I couldn't figure out how to imbed this video, but it is a highlight of Pretty in Pink, one of my all time favorite movies. I wanted to be Molly Ringwald in this movie. And the soundtrack rocks.

Yet another part of my youth, gone forever, but never forgotten. RIP John Hughes, and thanks for leaving the memories.
