I just watched Anthony Bourdain's meal with President Obama in Vietnam. How cool was that?
Then I read for the first time his 1999 Article that started his path to fame. I noted in particular these sentences: "People who order their meat well-done perform a valuable service for those of us in the business who are cost-conscious: they pay for the privilege of eating our garbage... the philistine who orders his food well-done is not likely to notice the difference between food and flotsam."
The man had a way with words that seem so relevant nineteen years later.
