    Been a huge fan of Bourdain and really enjoyed the man. May he be forgiven for taking his own life.

    Yeah none of us are perfect but most of us don't check out on our kids like that.

    Joey, you don't know what I know.
    It's virtually guaranteed that members of this forum have lost someone to suicide. A mother, father, sister, brother, son, daughter, husband, wife, or friend... This kind of comment is hurtful and unnecessary, at least in my book.

    And you too don't know what I know. Your assumption implies that I am not one of the above. Well I am on multiple counts.

    Yeah hurtful. I respond to a rediculous comment that if one is not "perfect" then they should say nothing. Call it whst you want, it's "your" book.

    All I assume is that everyone handles life differently. I can't claim to know what you know and I didn't. Fact is, some have lost, and maybe don't need to hear how they've been "abandoned." In the end, if that's the message you feel you need to express, then I guess that's what you're gonna do.

    Heck, might as well leave this here while I'm at it: https://suicidepreventionlifeline.org

    A real bummer here with Mr. Bourdain. I didn't follow his program closely, but liked it on the occasion I happened across it. Reading from what some others have posted here, I would have enjoyed seeing more, given the fan-cited perspective on his view on life and living, sad development notwithstanding.

    Re: the forum response to this news, maybe I missed something somewhere in this thread, but if any of the comments on insensitivity and poor taste were directed to afterburnt, I didn't pick up any of his comments as being negative. From the onset I thought he simply alluded to another (valid) perspective for consideration, and didn't take his comments to be derogatory or critical. I did see a couple of others that were, which was a little disappointing. Just wanted to throw that out there. Seemed a bit of a misunderstanding the way I saw things play out later. My unsolicited 2¢.
