Quarantined Houston Critic Has Pig Flu But Keeps Reviewing

The restaurant critic for the Houston Press, one Robb Walsh, was recently diagnosed with the N1H1 virus, more commonly known as swine flu. Fortunately, he's supposed to be fine, but it does mean that the guy has to be quarantined to his home for a week.

And, since most food writers are a little wonky by nature, Walsh has continued to review restaurants during his house arrest. His friends are actually delivering take-out meals to his house so that he can still file reviews, as seen in the photo. But said friends won't accept any cash for the food because they don't want to touch anything possibly contaminated with pig flu. Valid.
