Award-winning poet CA Conrad was so upset about Philadelphia magazine putting the Mummers on its list of “10 Things We Need to Get Rid Of” that he wrote numerous all-caps comments on the publication’s Facebook page, then showed up at magazine’s office after he being blocked from further posting. Editor Tom McGrath writes:
Mr. Conrad informed our receptionist that he wouldn’t leave. When that message made it to me, I passed along my business card and again asked that he call or email to set up an appointment.
Again, he refused to leave. At which point, well, we called building security, who apparently escorted the Noted Poet from the building.
Conrad wrote his own version of what happened at the magazine offices:
They gloated over my removal from the office on Face Book. Oh, and while I was being escorted OUT, one of the magazine’s enforcers said that I was to be arrested if I ever stepped foot inside the building again. NICE!
