Don't mess with the bull, young man. You'll get the horns.

It is always sad when someone dies. It's a bit disturbing when it is a pop culture icon. I'm willing to wager that anyone who has seen The Breakfast Club has instantly, and possibly unconciously, associated Mr. Vernon with every principal in existence.

The cheesy suit, the unmoveable hair, and the completely clueless bad-ass attitude made Mr. Vernon a perfect foil to a group of detention misfits.

Sadly, Paul Gleason has died.
