No more ‘Greatest Show on Earth’ after May

Not enough suckers coming into the tent, apparently, a reference to Phineas Taylor Barnum’s famous quote.

Ringling Brothers and Barnum & Bailey Circus will close forever in May after a 146-year run.

The culprits:

Declining attendance.
Escalating costs.
Animal rights groups.
