OK, I didn't know who Kevin Williamson was until today, either. But see if you agree that he's America's new hero.
Williamson, a write for National Review's "On the Corner" feature, says in this blog post that he want to see a New York musical, "Natasha, Pierre and the Great Comet of 1812." He doesn't say how much the tickets cost him, but a single premium ticket for Friday night costs $175.
Here's what happened when Williamson asked the woman sitting next to him to quit talking on the phone and turn off her cell phone:
I asked her whether I had missed something during the very pointed announcements to please turn off your phones, perhaps a special exemption granted for her. She suggested that I should mind my own business.
Mr. Williamson was escorted from the theater but into the hearts of everyone who has found himself sitting next to an idiot inside a theater.
Williamson says "there is talk of criminal charges." I think he means against him, although I'd see to see charges filed against the woman who slapped him.
