Did you ask him "What's the Frequency, Kenneth?"

Cheers.
I've run into him a few times. I always wanted to do that. I had a nice conversation with him and exchanged business cards with him on an Acela a few years ago. But I couldn't bring myself to say it to him.

This is interesting, since a couple of people have reported that he is more of a DYKWIM type person.

Does anyone else find that Denzel crack racist? Yes, I am aware that "Flight Plan" is a movie starring Denzel Washington, but in the context of all of those other tweets...

Oh, and it is a shame that AA didn't make Bourdain sit in the soiled seat.
