obsessed much?

I'm almost done with Anthony Bourdain's Nasty Bits. I should have finished a long time ago, but I think I'm really putting it off because I love it so much I don't want it to end!

At least I can get more Anthony from all the interviews he's doing. Here's two really good ones:

Interview with Powell's Books.

Interview with Salon. you have to watch a Honda commercial to read the whole thing, but Tony's well worth it. Here's a little blurb to convince you:

Salon:You've said that the U.S. should open the borders to let more workers from countries to the south of us get work and populate the kitchens.


S:Am I getting that right?

A:Ooh, I got a lot of mail over that. Listen, in 25 years, I don't remember ever seeing an American-born kid of any income level walk into my restaurant, or any restaurant owned by any of my friends, and ask, Do you have a dishwasher job, or a prep job, or a job for a kitchen porter? We're not willing to do it. If somebody else wants to come over here and do it, that's fine with me.

And yeah, I think we should open our borders, for a variety of reasons. First of all, we've got plenty of work for people, apparently. People say "they're taking our jobs" -- well, no one's asking for those jobs.

I also like the idea of people from other places coming to our country and multiplying. It makes for better food, higher expectations, more diversity and cuter people. Foreigners should come to our country and have sex with our womenfolk.

S:Hey, why can't they come have sex with our menfolk?

A:That, too!
