There seems to be more and more people killing themselves. Or the media is just reporting on it more now.

It is the latter; media reporting on it now.

Hitherto there has been sort of a code amongst media outlets in many countries to not report on suicides, due to the dreaded copycat effect:

Suicides goes up when suicides are reported on, but, alas, in these times journalistic integrity of course gives way to clicks and retweets.

RIP Anthony and my condolences to his family. I watched his show many times and enjoyed it very much but being on the road all the time, away from home and family, must have taken its toll on him.

a reply to: InTheLight I'm pretty sure the guy had enough money so he didn't have to continue being on the road and leading a celebrity life style if he chose not too. Was he an alcoholic? He seemed to drink a lot.

One thing for sure, he chose to be on the road and be alone.

Yes, he was an alcoholic and an addict.

Alcohol and drug abuse are very much a part of the service industry and there is a saying many people use about chefs:

"Most chefs have AA disease. They are assholes and alcoholics".

I hope he rests well.

It looks like many did because they titled it 'award-winning'.

Gonna miss him.

Sad, very sad. I don't know if he was a good man or a bad man, but he was sure as hell an infinitely interesting man.


a reply to: Skywatcher2011

I don't think he was someone easily pigeonholed into one political camp or the other. He didn't like Trump, that doesn't magically make him a leftist POS like the "news" makers on CNN.

Badboy chef Anthony Bourdain’s new CNN series Parts Unknown was watched by 747,000 viewers last night. The heavily promoted 9 PM Sunday debut of the weekly one-hour show garnered 282,000 viewers in the key 25-54 demographic for the network. April 15, 2013


Couldnt find any recent ratings...but I am sure there were over a hundred thousand viewers of his show easily.
