I just heard this. So shocking and so very sad. Been a big fan for many years. My condolences to his family, friends and colleagues.

 

Oddly, in addition to feeling shock and sadness, I am also feeling incredibly pissed off about this. I know, it makes no sense.

I had just heard about this.  Like many, I watched his shows for a long time.  I think his shows on Asia sparked my love of the region and desire to travel there.  Lately, his shows on CNN were beautiful - really well shot, paced, and had a great narrative.  I'll miss watching them.

His back-and-forth banter with Ruhlman was one of the most entertaining things on eG back when I was a newbie. I never see a walrus without thinking of him.

Sad. Wasn't  a huge fan, didn't watch his show, but his book was hysterical.

 

Depression is an ugly thing. Hope he's at peace now.

 

Don't ask. Eat it.

We have lost a significant voice. His reportig from Lebanon was so heartfelt, and as Kenneth T noted, his work has evolved as a social conscience. Example http://roadsandkingdoms.com/series/dispatched-by-bourdain/

As a wise man said this morning -  suicide sucks. Particularly piercing to a daughter of a suicide.

Sad indeed.

 

I feel for those who are left with no alternatives (to them, at least) but suicide.  I do not want to imagine what they must have felt to put them in that place.  I feel even worse for those they left behind.

 

Having gone through this very recently with a drug OD of a BIL (38) who left behind 3 boys under age 10.  Sadness, soon replaced by anger and more sadness.  Unimaginable.
