Phew, at least it wasn’t the greasy food that did him in. Or the underground heart/stomach work he had done in Mexico (I’m not kidding).

Not exactly the kind of compassion you extend to someone who took their own life. I’m not kidding.

Yet 2 weeks ago everyone was lolling at a homeless booze hound who died in a park. Thats the new Ballard hipster mentality I guess (as shown by your style of glasses).

Homeless wino == not cool
Ultra greasy food chef == tragedy

I’ve been to their restaurant a number of times. They were rude with patrons and the whole kitsch-atmosphere was trying desperately to be “cool” while at the same time charging you an arm and a leg for low quality meat served in a closet with dripping grease.

I found him a friendly individual who was passionate about what he did. His cuisine at Fork showed flashes of brilliance. *** According to CDC data in 2010 Washington State had the 28th highest percentage of adults meeting the standard for obesity. Only 9 states had an obesity average 2% or grater than Washington. Based on 2009 data Washington had the 34th highest percentage of adults who were obese or overweight. At… Read more »

You are an insensitive jerk. Nothing like kicking someone when they
can’t defend himself. Hope when you pass on, others will be more respectful than you are to Scott. His Aunt.
