A flurry of breaking news just hit within the last few minutes, so, appropriately enough, I have a flurry of breaking (if brief) thoughts.

Director John Hughes just died of a heart attack at the age of 59. Do you realize how goddamn prolific this guy was? Check out his IMDb credits.

And then read my tribute to Some Kind of Wonderful here.

And the United States Senate has just confirmed Sonia Sotomayor as the nation's first Hispanic Supreme Court justice. In my book, this "wise Latina" judge is second only to Judge Marilyn Milian on The People's Court. Seriously. Don't argue.
