This is one of those publicly personal messages. You know the ones. Deliberately posted in a public place as "personal" to so-and-so to let the entire world in on the conversation.
I don't know who you are. Nor do I care. You were at the Mystic Theatre to see the New Riders of the Purple Sage on Saturday night. You wore a red baseball hat. You came down to the front of the stage and tried to push me out of the way. When that didn't work, you hit me. I asked you to please stop and you responded by bumping me with your hips. You were a complete asshole. Luckily, two people who were behind us saw it (one of them was Lee from Humboldt) and removed you. Later, you had the nerve to come backstage (uninvited and unwanted, may I add) to ask David Nelson to sign your DVD, which he did. My point in saying this to you is, dude, get it together. Sure, you have a right to be there. You have a right to enjoy the show. You do not have the right to push or hit anyone else. In this case, you had the great misfortune to run into me and I am taking this public. I know who you are, I have seen what you can do, and if you show up again and repeat this behavior I will not hesitate to have you ejected from the place. To be fair, once you were informed of your behavior, you did apologize (at the insistence of Bethy) and I accepted it.
I love all the New Riders and Nelson Band fans dearly. As far as I can tell, you are not one of the regulars. We would love to welcome you into our ever expanding circle of friends. But only if you are cool.
