Missing in Action

Hide & Seek

Last night as I was pondering the death of John Hughes, I was thinking how many of the peeps who appeared in his films seem to be MIA, of late. Where for art thou Judd Nelson, Molly Ringwald, Andrew McCarthy, hot guy from Sixteen Candles?

Seems that alot of celebrities from my youth have disappeared and maybe for good reason: most were, at best, Teen Beat ciphers with a penchant for partying, at their worse, talentless hacks who went on to rob dry cleaning establishments. My generation did not really get a Leonardo DiCaprio, you know what I'm sayin. Yet another instance of the eighties failing us, yet again.

Riddle me this, interweb, who else is MIA?

    It pains me to admit this however, I do on occasion feel a pull towards the wall of rag-mags at the corner store and in moments of weakness buy a People magazine... anyhooo... Molly Ringwald landed herself an article in People this wk ... she is now the mother of twins and this has warranted a 4 page spread after so many years out of the limelight!
