They're pretty late to the game but it's still heartening to see this information in the mainstream media.

Hello, I've posted the article here:<br><a href="http://restorationperpetua.wordpress.com/2011/10/25/mother-jones-article-on-ringling-bros/" target="_blank">http://restorationperpetua.wordpress...ringling-bros/</a><br><br>
Don't know how long I'll be able to keep it up but am trying to get it out as widely as I can. I hope the more parents know about this, the fewer of them will patronize these sadists. If the link doesn't work, message me and I'll send you the article.<br><br>
I agree with all previous comments, except I don't know if MJ is really mainstream. But it's mainstream enough that hopefully more and more investigative journalism will be done on the topic, and Ringling's cruelty will be shut down.
