Most of us remember going to the circus as children, or adults, or both. After more than 146 years, with plenty of laughter, now comes to tears. The Greatest Show on Earth with entertainment by elephant and clown will finally be closing down.

There is good news and bad news. Ringling Brothers and Barnum & Bailey® hold a final performance in May. The bad news is that after elephants were taken off the road, they saw a dramatic attendance drop.

Say so long to the first-ever female ringmaster, along with and a full cast of about 300 people, with three performing units, who visit 115 cities each year. It's now time for the animals to retire and relax.

Of business because it does not wish to compete with Congress and The Donald.
