RIP, John Hughes, 1950-2009

If you were even merely partially sentient in the '80s, one or more of his films will have touched something in you somewhere, even if you weren't a 'teen' or 'tween' at the time (Ferris Beuller is my hero). His characters and stories epitomized '80s sentimentalities, but the essential insights about youth and the intimate terrors of adolescence were timeless.
