It was not. It was directed at the horrifyingly blinkered and perhaps unintentionally hideous Beaver.

TBP thinks I am hideous? Compared to posts by others that are routine here? We definitely have a difference of opinion.

Did my post violate any of the forum policies? I don't think so. Did it insult any poster here? No. Are harmless comments at the passing of a pompous celebrity a problem? No.

Bourdain didn't strike me as pompous at all.

Most celebrities strike me as pompous, including him. It pretty much goes with the territory. His name even rhymes with vain.

Like I said, I enjoyed his shows and watched many of them. But he is just another rich, famous celebrity who had an early and troubled end.

I would say I will miss his shows but it seems like he had been to almost every country, so what else was there to do with his show? His show probably had nowhere to go. Maybe he realized that and it led him to do what he did.

Yeah, no rules are violated, but you and Shorty seem to have some deep empathy deficit. Whether it be a helicopter crash, suicide, or natural disaster, you just don't seem to give a shit aside from being chuffed you could start a thread about it.

What's your real name Beaver, so we can falsely attribute characteristics to you after you die based on a name you had no role in choosing. You're the worst.

no, i think it is closer to rhyming with "pen" . . .

He stopped in Milwaukee for the "Heartland" episode of his previous series, No Reservations.

The Travel Channel has been running Bourdain's old shows. The one from his visit to Cuba in 2013 included a restaurant in Havana where Ms Vilas and I ate lunch in December. He had the same meal. Chicken, black beans and rice.

My favorite lines from that show was when Bourdain said the three best things that resulted from the Revolution were baseball, health care and education. The three worst were breakfast, lunch and dinner.

This is probably the stupidest thing you've ever posted. Oh, wait,
Beaver, asking me to hold his beer wrote:Like I said, I enjoyed his shows and watched many of them. But he is just another rich, famous celebrity who had an early and troubled end.

Every tribute I came across after Bourdain's death emphasized his compassion and humanity. Feel free to read these comments and reconsider your opinion.
