I love Anthony Bourdain [”The Bourdain Buzz,” Aug. 24 Xpress]. I watch his show and I own his books. I will not be going to see him when he comes to town. Why? Because I am one of the people he writes for. I work in a restaurant. I do food for a living. Due to the wages I receive for being the essence of what my idol has informed and enlightened so many people of, I simply do not have $124 lying around so my girlfriend and I can see him. Damn.
