Thomas Garvey reports on an incident at a Boston Baroque performance last weekend involving a guy who apparently was conducting along with the performance in his seat and the elderly woman behind him who finally had enough:
"Could you - excuse me, but could you please - " the lady was continuing, even though she was obviously being ignored (he was softly wheezing again).
But then she took out the cane.
"EXCUSE ME," she repeated, more sternly, as she brandished it in close proximity to his stomach (the wheezing ceased immediately).
Via the Mirror Up to Nature, which features a report on an incident in Chicago very similar to the 2007 Pops dust-up.
