John Hughes dies

John Hughes, who directed some classic movies in the 80's like Ferris Bueller's Day Off, Planes, Trains and Automobiles, The Breakfast Club and tons more, ended up dying yesterday of a heart attack in New York City. John was just going for a morning walk while visiting his family when he ended up going into cardiac arrest. John had taken a step away from the limelight to focus on his family, an Illinois farm, and also supporting independent arts. He was 59 and left behind a wife of 39 years, two sons and four grandchildren.

Check out a scene from one of my favorite movies, Ferris Bueller's Day Off. Our thoughts go out to John's family.
