Last Friday, under tragic circumstances, renowned media chef Anthony Michael Bourdain passed away. His death has shocked all those in the numerous areas where he shone.
We believe that his is a great loss for the Basques. He always showed great admiration, fondness, and respect for the Basques and their whole culture. It was this admiration and respect which caused him to actively defend the Basques.
In an entry from just over a year ago, you can see this; as he explained:
My love for the Basque, for Basque culture, for my Basque friends, is absolute. I hope I will be forgiven for this. But if not, I can live with it.
All we can do is send our condolences to his loved ones, and regret the loss of such a great and loyal friend to the Basques. Sit tibi terra levis.
