Anthony Bordain Stuck In Lebanon

I read something last week that Anthony Bordain was filming an episode of No Reservations in Lebanon when the bombings happened. He is now stuck there unable to get home. I can't wait to watch that episode. That will be an interesting one for sure.

Down by us, in GA, there is a group of children from a vacation bible school over there.

I can't imagine being their parents sitting here worrying.....or being AB's mom for that matter.

It sure is a scary place to be right now.

My uncle and his family just returned from Israel the other day. He was one day ahead of all the missles. The missles would land in the town he was in the day before. I am just glad they are home safe now.

Something tells me that AB's mother has been through a lot more than her son being stranded in Lebanon with bombs going off all around him

I do believe you are right....at least right now, she knows where he is.

I'm glad your family is safe and sound.

latest reports state that there are an estimated 25,000 Americans stranded. The number includes military, government workers, tourists, and I guess celebs too...should make for an interesting No Reservations.

good question for thouse Hezbola guys, why do they hate the rest of the world?

My son just got back from Israel, a week ago, I'm just glad he is home.

I wish I could ask them Charlie. I guess hate is easier. These people were born to hate.. raised to hate..and will make the next generation HATE too. I just don't get it and I don't see how it will get any better.

I'm glad your son is home safe and sound.

I think we sent a cruise ship to pick American citizens up, but also heard (on CNN) that we were charging $7000 each for this favor. Did anyone else hear this?
