Dear Madhura Rao,

I love your article & get where you’re coming from, especially as an immigrant! We knew nothing when we immigrated from Soviet Union — my mom used to make me sandwiches with raw bacon because we had no idea we had to cook it! We came from the land of scarcity & spoke very little English. It’s a wonder I didn’t get trichinosis!

But Gordon Ramsey, he’s a prime A asshole, a fact he is not only aware of, but for some assholy reason proud of, like it’s a grand thing he invented. It’s not & he didn’t. Being a prick isn’t a brand, & I’m proud of every show I don’t watch with him.
