A Message from the Awl (Someday an actual, shoe-wearing journalist may discover that Mr. Hamm has human flaws.)

Dear Jon Hamm,

I'm glad things are going so well for you! It's terrific that you're super-funny and everyone's new crush and that you do such a great job of playing a bad boy in your show "Mad Men" but then turn out to be a regular nice guy in real life, offering up both the fantasy of a man who will treat you like dirt and the comfort of knowing that you're really kind and gentle. But, seriously, "I used to teach little kids and I loved it so much"? STOP. You are no longer playing fair.

Best, etc.,
