She wasn't the first and won't be the last. This guy had a brilliant career, but apparently it wasn't enough. Ironic he was a legal scholar:

Well we have 70% out-of-wedlock black births and 40% plus out-of-wedlock white births--either of which would have been considered both impossible and a disaster 50 years ago--but here we are.

He was clever and sarcastic
Just like the usual roll-call of "comedians" today: Bill Maher, Jon Sewart, the late George Carlin, et al.

Goran_K says
Reporter: “If Trump and Kim Jong-un were going to have a bit of a summit to try and mend relations and they wanted you to cater, what would you serve?”

Bourdain: “Hemlock."
He would have served it only to Trump.

Goran_K says
Probably killed himself because he was consumed with hate.

Bourdain had lung cancer 4-5 years ago. It went into remission. Probably came back with a vengence.

That explains it.
Then you have Charles Krauthammer:

some people act as if they just want to be miserable
My band leader friend's parents Tony and Rebecca, probably in their early 60's, are experiencing the worst case of TDS that I've ever known, especially Rebecca--most people I'm friends with are apolitical, so I've never had any other first hand experience with it. Tony posted today that "Knowing that Trump is president makes me feel dirty". Rebecca posted that she may become a British citizen. And what amazes me are the numbers of comments responding in sympathy with them. They have good lives, have lived for about nine months now in the first house they have ever owned--rented all their lives, so it looks like that would distract them and make them happier. I don't think their 33 year old son is as politically obsessed as they are as he stays busy with his 17 piece re-creation orchestra virtually every day of the year, but I know his wife Danielle, who is 12 years older than he, is furious with things political. Also the fact that they have had to move from their rental in a part of Dallas where prices are exploding didn't help. When he plays at the Kessler I often eat with Tony and Rebecca at Norma's Cafe across the street before the show and they are as pleasant as can be, but nothing is ever mentioned about politics thankfully because she has said on Facebook she hates anyone who doesn't hate Trump. They also hate and ridicule religious observance. I think this is a form of mental illness that is completely unnecessary.

Almost a perfect description of Louis Auchincloss's 1950 collection of short stories "The Injustice Collectors", described as people who seem to get no pleasure out of life unless they're being mistreated.

mainly because it is the number one country for unnecessary surgeries
And the US spends tremendous amounts on end of life care and procedures that are not going to prolong life to any significant degree, but are required under guidelines of senior living centers. My neighbor was placed in one of the most expensive assisted living centers in town because her late second husband, who was 22 years her senior was well off and died 21 years before she did after a brief illness and had provided handsomely for her, after she was well past the ability to care for herself. After six months, she was under 100% care and had to be restrained at all times. Yet she lived another two years like that and when she'd have a medical emergency, she was rushed to ICU where the meter started running--she finally passed away after three such occasions. In a more sensible climate, she would probably have been allowed to die a normal death of whatever the emergency consisted.

Can you imagine the reaction if, say, Jimmy Stewart or Bob Hope expressed sentiments like that towards FDR in 1943 in a Hollywood venue, which was squarely behind America then?

Well the city often cleans up these encampments, but they're the authorities--and whether you like it or not, that is another person's property. He's a narcissistic prick and besides, who wants to grab a handful of that filthy bedding from which you could get lice or bedbugs, or get stuck with a needle. Let the authorities do it.

U.S. high school officials are less frequently disclosing students' class rank, adding another layer of fog for admissions counselors reviewing transcripts

American media have degenerated into a gang of corporate shills who defend the profits of ultra-rich (lying about WMD's in Iraq got less coverage that Clinton's blowjobs), and if they are against something, I may be for it.
It's kind of the same thing of Bill Maher saying he hopes the economy tanks so they can get rid of Trump. He and his ilk were 100% in it for Hillary along with the media in addition to outspending Trump, yet she still didn't win. I could put it another way, even if the economy doesn't perform as well or better, just keeping Hillary out of office made it worth the effort to see the meltdowns and TDS.

Klepper “intends to drive” it by “challenging attitudes, perceptions and bias.”

Of course, Klepper has no bias at all.

"The House Republican budget, titled “A Brighter American Future,” would remake Medicare by giving seniors the option of enrolling in private plans that compete with traditional Medicare, a system of competition designed to keep costs down but dismissed by critics as an effort to privatize the program."

you might find yourself suddenly craving watermelon and fried chicken...
Mr. Silvey and his wife ran the Flame Room cafeteria in the basement of the Lone Star Gas building where I worked in Dallas and they always had themed menus for special occasions. One of my favorites was for June 'teenth they'd have fried chicken, spare ribs and water melon--oh, also red soda pop.

Makes me suspect that business expected good things from a Trump economy and wanted to get a jump on ordering. Since then we’ve had wobbles, but the trend is generally up.
Bob and Feux of course didn't like your explanations and did everything to shoot them down. The whole piece is a shoot-down.
