One of the sad thoughts that occurred to me when we made the journey to Oregon was that someone famous would be the first to be noted in this forum. It is ironic that he was the director of some memorable comedies.

Next time you watch Ferris Bueller's Day Off, give it a spin with the Fight Club theory in mind.

According to the Fight Club theory, Ferris Bueller doesn't actually exist; he's Cameron's Tyler Durden, a figment of Cameron's imagination through which Cameron acts out and does all the things he'd secretly like to do, including stealing his father's car.

Whoah... Hey, that totally makes sense. I'll never see Ferris the same way again. Which is probably a good thing, because he was kinda a douche... wink

And still playing into his 90s, right up until he took sick.

I won't miss him either but he was a fellow human being so I salute his passing. Ultimately, all of us live and die in vain.

Norman Borlaug, arguably the greatest human being who has ever lived. By the time he won the Nobel Peace Prize in 1970, he was credited with personally and directly saving the lives of over one billion people, or nearly one-fifth of the world's population.

Your link takes me to the Reply page to MMT3's post. I think that you pasted the wrong URL so you might want to fix it.
