On The Waterfront write Budd Schulberg has died, aged 95.

Thats the writer of my favourite film, and the director one of my favourite film segments (ref John Hughes above) gone in a few short hours.

I have CDO. It's like OCD except the letters are in alphabetical order, as they should be.

Baitullah Mehsud, Pakistani Taliban leader, who has been picked by four teams on the DDP, is reported to be in a coma suffering from diabetic and kidney complications.


Conflicting reports that he isdead or not dead.

He might be dead this time. http://news.bbc.co.u...sia/8188859.stm

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.

Actor John Quade dies at 71.

Probably best known over here as the Hells Angel gang leader in the 'Every Which Way...' films.
