Column: Assault Over Barbecue Has Happy Ending – Local – Free Press And Jones Post

7 Days: Regional arts and entertainment

What event could cause a seemingly sane person (me) to be locked in a petroleum-propelled motor vehicle with a man deemed incurable by the Bromidrosis Institute? A concert by The Who, thats what. For many years, if I went to a concert there was a good chance Id be alone. Aside from my father and long-time concert compadre Jon Hughes, the odds of me strangling the person riding to the show with me were 50/50 on a good day. While inviting someone to a concert seems like a fairly casual thing to do, it is a deadly serious social contract. Your average mook is going to show up at least a half an hour later than the agreed upon time of departure. Anybody that shows up late outside the umbrella of A) a family emergency or B) anything involving a really good-looking woman should be treated as a possible terror suspect. Another potential power keg is food. Especially when heading to a show after work, time is of the essence.
