    Me too - then I remembered I’d had to look him up before.

    Bourdain was a treasure in the foodie world. The most unstuffy of food writers, downright crusty most of the time. His travel shows celebrated indigenous cuisine and people, rather than the high-end exclusive "gourmet" scene. His tragedy was a lifetime of addiction and self-destructive behavior. He had a lot to offer the world, and his suicide made me sad. I am not sure I would want to own one of his watches, to be honest. (But I will take a look at the link.)
    Too many watches, not enough wrists.

    Well said.

    His suicide was made more meaningful to me because of a friend who was suffering through some of his own demons at the same time. He had two people in his close circle take their own lives about the same time as Bourdain. My friend called me one day and asked me to come to his house and collect all his firearms. He wasn't necessarily planning to kill himself, but he was struggling with the loss of friends, depression, and other emotional issues. He was concerned that his firearms gave him easy access to a solution.

    I still have my friend's firearms in my safe. He's doing well with medication and therapy. I'm really happy he's still around.

    If you or someone you know is struggling, call the National Suicide Prevention Hotline - 8002738255.
