And those are a dime a dozen. He was special because he did not automatically say everything was great. Instead, it was harsh, mean, and abrasive, but honest. He avoided anything mainstream, instead looking for great food in back alleys, in smoky corners.

Will be missed.

For example George Eastman, founder of Eastman Kodak, committed suicide at 77 because of failing health. Without knowing the why it is hard to lay it at one cause. And for someone like Anthony Bourdain, who seriously abused his body when young with drugs and was a heavy smoker, etc., we don't know what sort of health challenges he was facing.

basically, it is a really complicated and tragic issue

Tell us the story. I for one would love to hear it. I've been a fan of his for years too. I read his book, I think it was his first one. I liked "No Reservations" and his current show on CNN.

I don't have a huge problem with this. I respect a person's autonomy enough to allow them that ultimate choice. In fact I have a family member whom less than 2 weeks ago took advantage of Oregon's death with dignity law. 102 years old, looked 70ish, still could transfer, only needed minor assistance.

That said, the loss of Tony was a body blow. I'm a huge fan. The guy may have had a ton of personal stuff, was called a jerk by some folks, was deified by others. But he certainly was one of my personal heros. Rest in peace. We weep for ourselves at the loss of you.

Looks like there is more to the story now. After publicly supporting his girlfriend Asia Argento in her Me too moment, she was photographed with another guy in a romantic situation. The pictures were published a few days before his suicide. Apparently he didn't get the open relationship memo. This may have been the triggering event the pushed his depression into a spiral.

That's pretty goddamn rough. I remember reading an article he wrote showing his support.

I was visiting in Las Vegas 07' (where I had lived from 02'-04') and was trying to get home. I was stuck in the ticket line for 2 hours and by the time I had gotten through security I had missed my flight. I was put on standby and scheduled to leave the next morning.I arrived at the airport only to wait in line again but this time the ticket line wasn't as bad,however the security check point was really badly backed up and I was at the back of the line. This man that at the time I had no clue who he was came over to me and said " Hey,Come with me,I'll get you around this line.No way we're waiting in it." He took me past everyone to the VIP area,got me through the check point in a matter of minutes and took me to the VIP lounge to wait for my flight. Told me his name and I thanked him for helping me and then he headed out to his flight while I waited for mine. I still didn't know just who he was at the time,but few years later I saw him on TV and I was like OMG He's the one who helped me! He was really nice to me and I'll always remember him for that,but I could see how he could come across as not so nice as his tone and abrasiveness was pretty apparent that day in the airport.
