Film director John Hughes has died of a heart attack while taking a morning walk.

It's clearly not a good year for icons from the 80's

Ugh ... why do I feel so saddened over this guy's passing? :bat:

I know why ... I'm in my mid to late 20s and I already feel like I'm old. The icons of my youth are fading away so quickly. It's one thing to lose guys like Walter Cronkite and Karl Malden. Although their deaths were sad, they were very old anyway so they didn't really affect me, especially since their peak was way before my time.

But to lose guys like Michael Jackson and John Hughes is sad b/c you realize that you can't turn back time to a more innocent youth. John Hughes was another individual who influenced my youth. I simply love his movies, especially his classics The Breakfast Club and Ferris Bueller's Day Off.
Will 2011 be it for the following?
Fidel Castro, Kim Jong-il, Dick Cheney, Margaret Thatcher, Billy Graham, Aretha Franklin, Ariel Sharon, Peter Falk, Elizabeth Taylor, Annette Funicello, Gerry Rafferty (RIP, gone right down the line to Heaven), Kirk Douglas, Zsa Zsa Gabor, James Garner, Jerry Lewis, Ruth Bader Ginsburg, Sir Richard Attenborough, Dick Clark, Harlan Ellison, Michael Douglas (joker)
