Bad Things Come In Threes

I've just read that John Hughes, director of THE teen films of the 1980s, passed away on Thursday. He had an art of capturing teen feelings and important moments in adolescence. As I was young when his films came out I only discovered them as they reached TV, many years later as it was then.

Two other great men also passed away recently, the greatly respected football manager Sir Bobby Robson who was everyone's football grandad / uncle, and Harry Patch, the last surviving man from the trenches during world war I.

Having endured endless front pages for MJ I feel that in the UK the real British public will be more sadden by these gentlemen passing than they ever were for MJ.
