I don't know how many of you have noticed an absence of John Amato on Crooks and Liars recently. The truth is that John called me up last weekend and said that he wasn't really feeling well--something about a virus and just being too sick to blog and would I mind running things for him so that he could rest and recover.

Naturally, being good friends, I agreed to take care of things and told him to drink plenty of fluids and rest. The email load alone that John has to deal with is a full time job.

And then Jamie Holly sent me a picture that rocked me to my core and made me realize I'd been had.

Now I think I'm gonna be sick. John, how could you???

Can you help us out?
