As many of you may know, I am no longer a New Yorker, so please check out my new blog A Library of My Own. If you are just reading Life and Times, you are missing out. Thanks!

I feel old today. I just heard that John Hughes passed away (I Heart Ferris Bueller) and Reading Rainbow has been cancelled. If I hear that Big Bird had a heart attack I may just go home early today.


  1. How sad. John Hughes films were a big part of my growing up. Pretty in Pink was the best film ever. John Hughes played a big part in my teenage years.

  2. No more Reading Rainbow...
    No more Wishbone...
    No more Are You Afraid of the Dark...

    Kids are totally missing out these days : (

  3. Butterfly in the sky...I can go twice as high! Take a look, it's in a book...the reading rainbow. I...can go anywhere. Friends to know, and ways to grow...Reading Rainbow. I...can be anything! Take a look, it's in a book...Reading Rainbow.

    (That was my favorite show as a kid).

  4. I just heard about John Hughes the other day. Now the 80s are REALLY over. :-(

  5. Reading Rainbow's cancelled? How sad.
