I feel so sorry for the kids of today . . . and am grateful that I grew up when I did, and had a Grandmother who loved the Circus.

Clearly the kids of today are not very interested in the circus or at least have plenty of other distractions. Are you saying that perhaps kids nowadays might be interested in the circus if it was more like the circuses of years ago ?
I also am grateful that I was brought to those great shows. It helped that my grandfather was a railroad detective and got free passes.

Thy will follow a circus that sticks to the core principle of presenting people and animals who do incredible things. Long, boring filler acts, choreography and unfunny clowns are a turnoff (and not just to kids).

Dennis, it's too involved to adequately address here. Let me try to find that Albert Einstein quote, seriously.

Bob, I add an exclamation point and a gold star to your last sentence.

I also would like to add that several of my CFA, CHS, CMB friends and I have so far seen 3, 4 or more performances of this year's Kelly-Miller Circus and enjoyed ever single one. Bravo John Ringling North II and a fine cast.

Albert Einstein, "I fear the day that technology will surpass our human interaction. The world will have a generation of idiots," I fully agree with the good Doctor. There is much more I would like to say about this and what I have observed at Circuses over recent years, but I will spare you all my personal diatribe . . . and I am sure most of you have made the same observations, I in utter disgust. Sic transit Gloria Circus.
