This is pretty incredible, shocking and sad.

We are real familiar with ‘Grandma’ & the ‘Big Apple Circus‘.

Before we started going to ‘Ringling Brothers and Barnum & Bailey Circus‘, on an annual basis, until they shut up shop in 2017, we used to go to the ‘Big Apple Circus‘ — at their Hanover (New Hampshire) performance, until they stopped coming c. 2011.

The main incident, which he had admitted, happened in 2004 and involved a 16-year old aerialist and pornographic photos! Not good. What was he thinking.

That he resigned per se, is a bit confusing in that it appears that he retired a couple of years ago.

Not good. Sure that there are a lot of parents mortified …

Another black eye for today’s circuses just as “The Greatest Showman” continues to do gangbusters at the movies.
