Hey, I took down the Bourdain post because it was being widely interpreted as disrespectful to Bourdain’s memory. I apologize; that was not my intent. I’m a big admirer of his, and do not want to insult him inadvertently. Plus, I’m going to be away from the keys all morning, and not able to manage comments.

P.S. And I apologize for not being clearer in my post: I do not blame Asia Argento for Bourdain’s suicide. Bourdain is responsible for Bourdain’s suicide. I regret that I implied otherwise.
