Question: Can you give us a heads-up next time you take a vacation? I don't like it when you tell us at the last minute. We need time to prepare.

Answer: Funny you should ask I'm actually on vacation right now. I know what you're probably thinking: "Michael, how can you be on vacation there's a new AA this week?!" Well, proving what an unbelievably selfless person I am,  I quickly pounded out an AA before I left, so that you, my beloved Ausholes, wouldn't be starving for scoop. I also pretaped my vodcast and made arrangements to have Matt Mitovich's go-to fill-in, Ben Katner, update my blog should any big, exclusive stories break in my absence. Bottom line: If all goes according to plan, you won't even know I'm gone. All I ask is that you cut me some slack on AA this week. It's leaner than usual, but you know what they say: A crappy AA is better than no AA!
