Anthony Bourdain Passes On

Today has just been dreary.  We’ve had the exact climate that drove us out of the GPNW when we retired.  It has drizzled ALL DAY.  It will do it again tomorrow.  And the day after that.  So that was the weather, which sort of matches our mood.

I can not believe Anthony Bourdain is gone.  We watched him for years, seeing his show morph from food porn to social commentary.  HIs episodes with Eric Ripert were so good, you could see how deep their friendship was.  But he’s gone now, and the world is a poorer place without him in it.

Look at that face.

  1. I didn't know who he was but anyone who feels there is no other answer than suicide is so very sad. My nephew took his life when he was a senior in high school. It is devastating.

  2. I didn't follow Bourdain like you have but knew of him, of course, and was shocked and saddened to hear of his suicide. He seemed to have it all. Just shows how little we can know of anyone from the outside looking in. RIP.
