Bad news today: director John Hughes died today at age 59, apparently of a heart attack as he took his morning walk in Manhattan.

He may not have direct ties to San Francisco, but Hughes will be sorely missed in this city. After all, how many of us have set up picnics in parks to watch multiple screenings of his pouty adolescent classics Pretty in Pink, Ferris Bueller's Day Off, Weird Science, Some Kind of, so many '80s hits the list just goes on.
