We need a good western TV series again instead of 17 CSI spinoffs.

Longmire is okay but it's a modern day western of sorts.

Hell On Wheels was pretty good but it’s off the air now.

Jerry Maren, last surviving munchkin, died last week in San Diego. He was the guy in green in the middle of the lollipop guild that hands Dorothy a lollipop.

That's absolutely horrible. Loved every cooking/travel show he ever did. Quite a story behind that guy.

I know, crazy. But if you really watch and listen to what he is saying, he had gotten very critical of the US and it's foreign policies the last few years. Right or wrong I don't know. But it seemed to me he was taking it quite personally, and that isn't surprising with some of the countries and areas he visited. His show in Haiti was a perfect example when he bought some food for some of the kids watching them film and was inundated with hungry kids. That has to effect anyone to some extent. But people just have to understand that the US isn't the worlds food basket, and we can't be held up to some standard that no country can attain as savior of everyone. He seemed to me to take this quite personally. The US has been involved it Haiti for over 100 years to no effect. The local socialist government has stymied every attempt the US has made there. Remember, Haiti is just one of the countries that occupy that island and the other is one of the most prosperous nations in the Caribbean. It seems a lot of people these days seem to think that the US is in a position to save everyone and we aren't. They get to wrapped up in it and it can be quite depressing to them.

Again just my thoughts. It's just that with social media the way it is people get way to emotionally involved in issues that they really have no control over. For someone who saw the worst of the world as he did....it had to be hard to balance that against the little bit of good in the world.

In one episode or interview, i don't remember which, he said the biggest thing he disliked about doing his show was seeing how badly the children were being effected and his feeling of helplessness. I can see how this could lead to great despair, especially to someone who went through what he did in his life.

I wouldn’t begin to speculate on why Bourdain took his own life...or Kate Spade,Chris Cornell,Robin Williams, Kurt Cobain and on and on and on except to say sometimes the pain of life is just too much for some.

Don’t drag US policy into this.

I never watched any of CSI, not one episode...no Law and Order or Big Bang Theory, either.

How about a western with Chris Pratt?

I'm just using that as an example of how some people get too personally involved with things that are extremely difficult to change, and how that feeling of helplessness can effect them. It could have been anything, but i have made the observation of what he has said about our government and that is why i used it as an example. Who knows what caused him to do this, we may never know. It could have been something personal that we will never know about.

You just never know what's going on in someone's head. I've had more good friends kill themselves than I care to count, and you just never could imagine it was coming.


He was definitely a troubled man, but seemed to have overcome so many challenges.

He may have been depressed about the economic situation in Haiti, or he might have been just as depressed about the situation in the US!

Please, let's keep politics out of this thread. Take a trip to the outhouse if need be.
