For one thing, I was troubled by him lumping Baltimore in with Detroit and Buffalo and calling the episode "Rust Belt." I lived in Detroit for eight years when I worked for the Detroit Free Press, and I can tell you that's the Rust Belt -- not Baltimore.
I also feared Bourdain was going to look at Baltimore only through the prism of HBO's The Wire, a fictional TV show.
Now that I have seen the whole Baltimore segment, forget being fearful and troubled, I absolutely hate what Bourdain did. He ignored any sense of the real diversity of Baltimore's rich ethnic mix to try and imitate a narrow slice of it found in a TV show.
