John Hughes had a pen pal

You may or may not know that John Hughes died yesterday. While I didn’t shed any tears, its a bummer to think that there won’t be anymore originals like:

  • The Breakfast Club
  • Home Alone
  • Ferris Bueller’s Day Off
  • Mr. Mom
  • Planes, Trains & Automobiles

He had a good sense of what was funny, a sharp contrast to many in the business today.

Alison, however, has a different take. She was pen pals with John and while he made an impact on her life, it looks as though she might have made one on his as well.
