Why I love Bourdain's writing: You know he's going to speak his mind in his usual entertaining, scorched earth way. This snippet from his post of five days ago about his guest judgeship on Bravo's "Top Chef":
"As for me? I could give a rat's ass who the producers or Bravo want to win or not win . What I've traditionally used the Glad Family of Bags for would probably not make a good commercial. When I read the surprising announcement that Michelob, a beer I don't drink and don't much like, was going to be "sponsoring" my Bravo blog, I advised them that I felt compelled to disappoint them."
