    We all have our dark and sad moments, anxieties, worries, and fears. I suppose for a lot of people those normal human feelings become something far worse and perhaps if you haven't ever been in true crisis it's impossible to relate.

    It's just so, so sad.
    Kitchen Confidential was the first food related book I ever read. His Travel Channel shows, No Reservations and The Layover, were must see TV in our house. He was a bit of a personal hero and I'm not a guy who has many of those.

    I think this just puts an exclamation point on something I have believed for years now...we really don't know what is going on inside anyone except what they allow us to see, and sometimes they lie about that. In fact, I'll take it a step further, sometimes we all lie about it.

    I didn't realize he had been addicted to heroin and coke and was likely an alcoholic as well. So sad. I'm like you Bob (and I suspect Chris and lots of others as well) - I'm not one to worship celebrities, or even especially mourn their deaths. But this news really, really saddened me. There's no sense in it, and there's even less sense trying to make any sense out of it. The news about Charles Krauthammer is very, very sad as well. One of the few political pundits that I have always sincerely admired and respected.

    I always find it interesting how certain celebrity passings affect me. Greg Allman hit me hard, I never saw the Allman brothers Band live, but they are easily one of my favorite bands. Tom Petty and Prince hit hard, and I had been fans of their music far longer than the Almman Brothers, but Greg Allman's death was tough for me.

    Tonight, I discovered Charles Krauthammer had passed. Having spent many years in the service industry in South Florida, I had my share of celebrity encounters, and never got overly excited about any of them. The one time I ran into Charles at a Nats game, I was like a child, nervous and star struck.

    Rest in peace!

    The more things change...the more they stay the same. It's like deja vu all over again.
