If you don't stop and look around once in a while, you could miss it.

From CNN:

John Hughes, the producer, writer and director whose 1980s films such as "Sixteen Candles," "The Breakfast Club" and "Some Kind of Wonderful" offered a sharp-eyed look at teenagers and their social habits, has died, according to a statement from his representative. He was 59.

Hughes died of a heart attack while taking a morning walk in Manhattan, according to the statement.

No, he will never go down as one of the most austere artistes, but his films mirrored an entire generation and are classics.
