This is excellent: Mayor Bloomberg could be a circus ringmaster if things in 2005 don't go his way. He'll just need to get tailored for a red jacket and take lots of vocal classes (for vocal projection as well as adding dynamism to his speaking).

The Mayor welcomed Ringling Brothers and Barnum & Bailey's Circus to City Hall. Yes, it's circus time, which means the Knicks and Rangers are on the road from mid-March till mid-April. Not that end of the season games are important or anything.

The Ringling Brothers website and information about how it cares for its animals.
