Anthony Bourdain committed suicide.

The shock of his death has wide ripple effects. The guy that started out as a Vasser drop-out dishwasher, but worked his way up in the culinary world, while overcoming heroin addiction, to become a celebrated chef and author......has taken his own life.

My son considered Bourdain a role model. Mostly because he'd faced his demons and come out the other end, with great success. But now what does that mean?
