    I'm always impressed with Anthony Bourdain's soulful and witty take on the places and people he visits. I also appreciate his generally candid views. I was disappointed, however, with how he softballed the issue of the woman doctor from Libya being forced to eat at the "children's table" during their trip to the beach. While I appreciate him at least addressing it, I wonder if this same situation cut across racial lines how tolerant he would be? Would you sit at a whites only table if that's what the local culture dictated? Wishing the people of Libya good luck is fine and well-intentioned but why couldn't you mention a hope for a future where women can sit at the table with the men?

    How popular is Bourdain's show? I'm really disappointed in CNN's decision to create a show featuring this very hedonistic and narcissistic man. And why would anyone want to spend an hour watching someone eat and drink? Wouldn't they rather be doing that themselves? I know I would. I hope CNN comes to its senses soon and cancels this silly and contrived waste of a hour.

    I have been following Bourdain for a long while now.

    Anthony, the best yet with "Parts Unknown". The quality, the camera angles, the writing, the EDITING ! Superb !
