daisy_knotwise and I just got back from Augustfest where the closing music act was Joe Cantafio and the 101st Rock Division, which turned out to be a substantially better group than I'd expected. They'd recently done a tour in the Middle East, entertaining U.S. and other Coalition troops, which made for some interesting stories as well.

While the rest of the band was taking a break, Joe played a few acoustic pieces. So he's standing at the microphone, trying valiantly to introduce a song that he'd written for his cousin who died in Iraq, and there's this clueless individual standing three feet in front of the stage, talking loudly on his Nextel phone. After this went on for more than a minute, Joe finally asked someone to please shoo the fellow away.

There's a desperate shortage of common sense out there.
