Bidding a sad farewell to Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Circus

From ring to ring, you have entertained. From generation to generation, you have brought families together. You have invited us in to witness and be a part of the Greatest Show on Earth.
But, you have also become one of America's great tragedies. After nearly a century and a half in business, doing what you do best, you will vacate your place in the entertainment space.
There will be other circuses. But there will never be another Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Circus.
(And please note that where I live, in Manatee County, FL, the circus closure means significant layoffs, because this is where it's headquartered.)
