Well the rude guy has been relieved of his chair in the orchestra. It is the appropriate thing to do (I think) but kind of sad. His wife (the principal) called me and talked for a long time about how he *used* to be - he has Parkinson's and she says it is so hard to just watch him deteriorate. I guess he hung up on DD when he got the news, but his wife said he cried after that. I really hope I know before my "time" comes in the orchestra - so many people play past their sell-by date. Just so depressing all around.
