80's Teenage Angst Icon Dead

Wow, I was trying to kill a couple of minutes before leaving the office and discovered that John Hughes died.

Talk about a major contributor to pop culture. Hughes was involved in "Ferris Bueller's Day Off", "The Breakfast Club", "National Lampoon's Vacation", "Uncle Buck", and several other highly notable 80's flicks.

Without Hughes, skipping class to go to a baseball game would not have been as glorified. We wouldn't have Abe Froman, the Sausage King of Chicago. And, all those classic movie quotes.

You left this world a much better place than when you entered it Mr. Hughes. We bid you adieu.

I'm so glad that bit starts off with Uncle Buck.

Between Planes, Trains, & Automobiles, Ferris, and The Breakfast Club, those are some of my favorite movies from my childhood.

Well done, Mr. Hughes. Well done.
