Cryptic utterance ...

... Actor Mark Rylance's Tony acceptance speech greeted by uniform confusion. (Hat tip, Dave Lull.)

    I was wondering why Dave sent you this piece, until I read down far enough to see that the poet lives in Duluth!
    Interesting that Mark Rylance got a lot of coverage out of it - use of a literary device to make sure it is your award that gets covered in the papers, not everyone else's.
    I hope he did attribute his source in his speech, though, it rather sounds not - it sounds as if he only provided an explanation, and an attibutation, when asked afterwards what he had meant. Naughty.
