Dirty Dancing came out when I was 13, and it's been my favorite all-time movie ever since. Forget that it all but ruined every family vacation for me from that point on. Mom and Dad, couldn't we have stayed in at least one place that offered dance lessons? So to hear of Patrick Swayze's passing is a very sad thing, for his real-life nearest and dearest above all, but also for a former preteen who used to wish like heck she could be Baby. May he rest in peace.
