    Damn! I like Bourdain and love the fact that he will take this stand.

    Good for him! Good to see in todays television age, that a person still has respect for his name and what he stands for, even if it could mean his show/job. Well done!

    I love Bourdain and this only solidifies that. I was bummed to see an advert for the final episode of No Reservations. I didn't watch it regularly, but it's far and away more enjoyable than any other traveling food/cooking related show I can think of.

    I've always liked Anthony Bourdain. I like him even more, now.

    I liked his book "kitchen confidential" but never cared for his show.
    This deserves a lot of respect though.

    I've always like him. His shows were fun, and he wasn't afraid to say what he thought. Also love his forward in the Nose to Tail cookbook. Wish more people did things his way, and weren't concerned with making a buck above all else.

    I became a fan when I read KC. Then I watched over the years as he embraced the very institutions he used to bash so I fell of his bandwagon.

    My issue is, he got in bed with television and now he's upset. I'm guessing he did pretty good those eight seasons and everything that has come from it. However I do agree he should be able to control his "brand".

    You sleep with the rats you'll probably get bit.

    BTW, I heard that one of his novels, "Bone in the Throat" might be made into a movie.

    I do really like his writing style.

    I've enjoyed his fiction novels as well. The man has a gift for writing, especially regarding the food industry.
    I kind of "fell out of love" after he quit smoking, got married and had a kid. He became waaay less cynical and gruff, and began talking about taking time to "stop and smell the roses" etc. etc. What happened to my grumpy alcoholic chain smoking hero??? He became one of the very people he used to make fun of.
    Also, he's a Yankees fan and I find that completely unforgivable.
    Still love the guy though, If it weren't for KC, I probably wouldn't still be cooking for a living. It is a "must read" for anyone considering doing this sick job for a living.
    If "Its" and "Buts" was candy and nuts, we'd all have a Merry Christmas
