Pagliacci and Government Regulation

Today from

A circus has saddened a clown after telling him he could no longer wear giant, floppy shoes due to health and safety concerns.

The circus' safety adviser, Larry Dewitt made the ruling after clown Valerik Kashkin fell 9-feet and broke his foot during a tight-rope act at a show in Liverpool, England.

He was told that his wacky size 18 shoes violated the circus' insurance policy. Kashkin said the ruling is unjustified.

Whole story at the link.
