Ringling Bros. Barnum & Bailey Circus to close after 146 years.

This was pure Americana. This was REAL entertainment back in the day. This was pure enjoyment. I'll be sad to see it go.  :'(  I had a lot of fond memories during my youth of my parents taking me to see the circus. My favorite acts were always those of the lions and tigers. :)

The Ringling Bros Circus was part of american history. The regulations made it impossible for
them to have the elephant acts. Sometimes I wonder if animal rights people go a bit too far.
I am sure many circuses have abused animals for entertainment purposes. I don't know if
Ringling Bros were guilty of it, but I would think it would be counter productive to mistreat
the most popular animals they had acts for.

It is sad to see this circus disappear into history. Circus entertainment has a long history
around the world. I imagine some will survive, but not the big ones in the USA.

I went to the circus when I was young also. My favorite act was the Gunther Gebel-Williams segment, with the tigers and lions. It's too bad it has come to a close after all these years, but, in the words of Bob Dylan...

The times, they are a-changin'....
