Small world dept.

De Baisch of the incomparable Retroactive Continuity blog had a close encounter with the crazy, annoying guy who sings hymns on the Metro. The Washington Post's Marc Fisher wrote a column a few years ago that depicted him as a harmless, charming eccentric; Mr. Fisher has no doubt never been a captive audience for this guy's hideous, atonal performances. What I always found most intrisuive and offensive about the singing guy is that there is literally no way to avoid his singing when you're on a subway with him; you can walk past a street performer, but you simply cannot get away from an idiot singing badly in a small, confined space full of people who would probably rather be somewhere else to begin with.
