Posted on 2006-07-15 04:33:16 by zyzygy

Anthony Bourdain, executive chef of Les Halles in NYC and TV
personality, is apparently trapped with his crew in Beirut while
filming an episode of his Travel Channel show "No Reservations".

He has posted a few times to an eGullet forum:

&gt; We've got some great friends of ours who are Lebanese by birth but US

&gt; Syndrome) are also trapped in Lebanon. They are going to try and get out
&gt; via Damascus, Syria but I have been reading that the bridges and road to
&gt; Damascus has also been bombed. I really hope that we see them again soon

I've smoked hookah with a Lebanese/American citizen. Aside from him
trying to marry off his sister to me, he mentioned the health care system
in Lebanon beats America hands down. And in the past, Beirut was the
oasis of the middle east.

Never been there and don't think I would if I had the chance because of
the dictatorship and politics, but give the people credit.

It's probably as much a sewer as looking out of your back door!

Nonsense. Any Lebanese with the money travel to Europe or the States to get
decent health care...


And in the past, Beirut was the
&gt; oasis of the middle east.


Pity the Arabs mucked it up...but then they specialise in ruining &quot;good
things&quot;...

There's a few stinky Arab/Muslim cabdrivers about on the streets, other than
that, no...

BTW I am really impressed with Israel's retaliatory measures, they have not
forgotten the lessons of the Holocaust. Every Israeli life is considered
precious and hence the response to the Hezbollah, etc. terrorists...

American college students hole up in Beirut

ÂI've never been this scared in my life, one tells MSNBC.com
There are no school officials nearby, so the students are running the
shelter operations by themselves.

&quot;It's literally being run by 19-year-olds,&quot; she said. &quot;We don't know
what to do.&quot;

&quot;I just want to go home,&quot; she added.

Prospects of that aren't good right now. Beirut airport, about 10
miles south of the school, is closed, bombed earlier this week by
Israeli warplanes.

Nice stereotyping.Pot, kettle, black. Glass houses and stone throwing,
etc. When you use stereotypes to judge an entire ethnic, religious, or
national populations...expect the same in return. Here's the one the
much of the rest of the world uses to describe Americans:

In general, Americans are greedy, bigoted assholes.

I hear that more and more where I live. As an American living overseas,
I get to hear first hand what many &quot;average Joes&quot; feel about Americans
and the American government. The comments are getting uglier and
uglier. The impressions of Americans are only reinforced by Americans
who speak and act like you when they are overseas or when they post in
international forums.

Blast away - this is my only comment on your bigotry and jingoism.

I must agree with you Helen. . .Lebanese food is totally awesome. In
my early 20s, I had a wonderful Lebanese friend, who taught me how to
make shish kabob the way they do in his country. I need to look up the
recipe, but mainly it introduced me to a combination of spices, I would
have never thought to put on meat. Things like Garlic powder,
cinnamon, allspice, etc.

I also worked with another sweet Lebanese guy for a few years. I had
no idea he was from Lebanon until one day the subject came up. He said
something really poignant, &quot;People all over the world, usually wish to
just live in peace, and provide for their families. . .It is usually
governments that prevent that!&quot;

So true. When you stop to think about it, it's almost as if their are
mini-governments within governments that are causing strife. I can
almost assure that the vast majority of Lebanese citizens would prefer
to move on with the advancement of their society, which they had been
enjoying for the last number of years. I've seen pictures and their
country recently had been taking on a very beautiful and growing
nation.

As far as the health care situation is concerned. . .I have no idea how
good or how weak it is in that country. I do know that Americans are
supposed to &quot;enjoy&quot; the most advanced health care in the world. But
sadly, we seem to have the least access to it!

Peace and bright blessings this day!

He doesn't need to &quot;break out&quot; :) He's already a well known chef and author
of a number of books. But this certainly won't hurt, if he makes it out

I'm sad that Carrie Nye died:

&gt;From www.nytimes.com :


July 17, 2006

Carrie Nye, 69, Williamstown Festival Actress, Is Dead

By CAMPBELL ROBERTSON

&quot;Carrie Nye, a stage, film and television actress and a fixture at the
Williamstown Theater Festival, died Friday at her home in Manhattan.
She was 69.

The cause was lung cancer, said her husband, the television host Dick
Cavett.

Ms. Nye, known for her dry wit and Mississippi drawl that inevitably
attracted comparisons with Tallulah Bankhead, made her Broadway debut
in 1960 in &quot;A Second String,&quot; an adaptation of a novel by Colette.
Five years later she was nominated for a Tony Award for playing a
society lady in the musical &quot;Half a Sixpence.&quot;

Other Broadway productions included &quot;A Very Rich Woman,&quot; a play
written by Ruth Gordon, and a 1980 revival of &quot;The Man Who Came to
Dinner.&quot; Among her Off Broadway credits were Michael Cacoyannis's
1963 production of &quot;The Trojan Women&quot; and a 1972 production of Tom
Stoppard's &quot;Real Inspector Hound.&quot;

But the core of her acting career was in regional theater. She came to
the Williamstown Theater Festival in northern Massachusetts a few years
after it opened, in 1955, and continued to return throughout the
1960's and 70's, playing the leading roles in &quot;A Streetcar Named
Desire,&quot; &quot;The Skin of Our Teeth&quot; and &quot;Nude With Violin.&quot; With
the American Shakespeare Festival in Stratford, Conn., Ms. Nye
performed &quot;Troilus and Cressida&quot; at the Kennedy White House.

She continued acting in Off Broadway and regional theater in the
1980's and 90's, performing in plays by Ibsen, Chekhov and
Tennessee Williams with the New Jersey Shakespeare Festival in Madison,
the Adelphi Festival Theater in Garden City, N.Y., and the Phoenix
Theater Company in Purchase, N.Y.

Along with her theater work, Ms. Nye also acted in many television
movies, including a two-part 1973 movie starring Richard Burton and
Elizabeth Taylor called &quot;Divorce His&quot; and &quot;Divorce Hers,&quot; an
experience she later described hilariously in an essay in Time
magazine.

Ms. Nye had the opportunity to play Ms. Bankhead in the 1980 television
movie &quot;The Scarlett O'Hara War,&quot; for which she was nominated for
an Emmy.

She continued her three-pronged career in the 1980's, acting in films
that included &quot;Creepshow&quot; and &quot;Hello Again,&quot; in regional and
Off Broadway productions and, briefly, on the soap opera &quot;The Guiding
Light,&quot; before her character fell into a pit of quicksand. (Ms. Nye
told Time magazine that her preferred death for her character was &quot;to
be impaled on a hatpin.&quot;) She returned to &quot;The Guiding Light,&quot; as
a different character, in 2003.

In a 2003 interview with The Times-Picayune of New Orleans, Ms. Nye was
asked to name the favorite role of her career. &quot;None of them,&quot; she
said. &quot;I only became an actress so I wouldn't have to cook or make
a bed.&quot;

Carolyn Nye McGeoy was born on Oct. 14, 1936, in Greenwood, Miss., the
daughter of a bank president and a homemaker. She attended Stephens
College in Columbia, Mo., and then went to the Yale Drama School, where
she met Mr. Cavett. After Ms. Nye graduated, in 1959, she and Mr.
Cavett went to Williamstown for the summer theater festival. They
married in 1964; her husband is her only immediate survivor.

In the 1960's, Mr. Cavett and Ms. Nye rented and then bought Tick
Hall, a Stanford White house in Montauk, at the tip of Long Island.
After it burned in 1997 Ms. Nye enlisted architects and
preservationists to build an exact reproduction of the house, down to
the doorknobs, a feat that was recorded in the 2003 documentary,
&quot;From the Ashes: The Life and Times of Tick Hall.&quot;

Wow, you're even nuttier than I thought. Jamal is a cop - killer and
Peletier got what he deserved.

Too bad it's not the old Cold War days, you could travel to the World
Youth Festival in East Berlin to protest against West German
&quot;revanchism&quot; and US &quot;imperialism&quot;, join the Venceremos Brigade to cut
sugar cane in Cuba, and loll around listening to your Dean Reed LP's...

Luckily dopes like you aren't in charge or we'd be right back in the
Stone Age...

Danny Thomas, noted performer, made a promise to St. Jude that he would
honor the saint if he helped him make good on his career. From this came
St. Jude's Research Hospital. Treats any child regardless of ability to
pay. All funds raised through the trust set up by Danny Thomas and
administered by his estate. Most recently, his daughter Marlo, wrote a book
with all proceeds going towards St. Jude's.

Danny Thomas was of Lebanese descent. We should all be as lazy and
dishonest.
