Pay attention, class. This week Skillset salutes to John Hughes, the prom king of the high school movie. First up, step into the office of high school principal Sean Gaillard to ask if that class-skipping punk Ferris is really the hero of Ferris Bueller. Then, we hand the microphone to guitarist Sam Cannariato of the cover band Molly and the Ringwalds to talk about how John Hughes' soundtracks became eternal hits. And finally: legend has it that John Hughes' original version of The Breakfast Clubwas two-and-half hours. Audiences have never seen a full hour of lost footage, including a whole new character. Assistant editor Nancy Frazen was there -- and we ask her what got cut out. So raise a fist and let's get marching on this week’s episode of Skillset.
On this episode of Working, David Plotz talks with a veteran waiter about how he does his job, how much he makes, and why waiters are definitely judging their customers.
Stefan Fatsis, Josh Levin, and Mike Pesca talk about the NCAA tournament and ESPN’s I Hate Christian Laettner. They also discuss all the player movement during NFL free agency, and Bruce Arthur joins to assess the imploding Toronto Maple Leafs.
