This is a great read, and was much more thoughtful than most.

Probably my only complaint or criticism is that I really dislike this habit of assuming an author's personality or values based on their work. I mean, it sounds like in Hughes' case it may have been justified (and Molly Ringwald is certainly in a better position than most to say so), but I think we're generally too quick to equate portrayal with lionization.
