Thread Name: Ethical Question - Handicapped Fans
Subject: RE: Ethical Question - Handicapped Fans
Friends, I appreciate the feedback on this, but I think I have made my own grave mistake. I should NEVER have named the person involved in the situation. There were several mitigating circumstances that I didn't mention. (this was a long time ago, and a faulty memory doesn't help.) I think it's a good thread with no easy answers, since I believe the theatre (which usually booked music hall acts) often gave blocks of tickets to local hospitals, and perhaps should have understood that my friend was a very quiet solo performer who would not have been capable of revising his presentation as I and a number of us here would have been able to. I will start another thread with a similar theme, but I have asked Max to remove this if he can. It simply was not fair of me to use a specific name, and I apologize. I'd really appreciate it if no one would post further on this. Thanks.
