A few days ago, I noted the passing of John Hughes.

Here, you can read a tribute by a young lady who became his pen pal. If you're not left with a tear in your eye after reading it, you have no heart.

Having had a few professional dealings with people in the public eye, I have become keenly aware of the fact that --- media notwithstanding --- most of them are a lot like the rest of us. John Hughes' gift seems to have been a keen awareness of that fact, and the ability translate it onto the screen.
