Shooting an Elephant--or 43

Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Circus announcedthe abolition of elephants from their act.

Unfortunately for the ringleader, it’s not the happy crowd under the big top but the angry animal-rights one outside that dictates his actions. Read my column @ the American Spectator on why humans need to be saved from the humans who save the elephants--and the world.
