Damn, what a horrible couple days it’s been for screenwriters and the industry at large — we’ve lost not one or two but THREE huge talents in the past 48 measly hours.

Bud Schulberg, writer of “On the Waterfront” died last night.

I just heard Blake Snyder, screenwriting consultant & author of industry standard “Save the Cat” died on Tuesday.

I just checked out some filmmaking blogs, and after signing out was immediately informed that John Hughes (does anyone reading this NOT know who John f’ing Hughes is??) died today.

Wherever they are now, a big THANK YOU to all these folks for enriching my life, as well as millions of others.
