I will claim I know the performer I am speaking of well enough that, in
the case I personally witnessed and mentioned above, it wasn't an
intentional statement by the performer in question. But that was a good
(If I ever do something like that as an artistic statement, I'd probably
have the cellphone jacked into the PA and prearrange at least one call.
Hmm. Thanks for the idea!)
