bourdain-deen.jpgFood editor of the Austin Chronicle Virginia B. Wood drops her take on the Paula Deen scandal. She compares Anthony Bourdain's past drug use to Deen's admission of some crazy racist shit: "[T]he Emmy nominations were announced and a prime example of that American double standard I was talking about slapped me in the face: An unrepentant former heroin addict who gets drunk and stoned on television is regarded as a 'charming bad boy' and gets multiple award nominations, but Paula Deen is a pariah? Seriously?" [Chronicle]
