Halloween is for little kids, but it's also for scares. I found this to be helpful in determining when it's appropriate for the twixt to meet.

"The Day The Clown Cried
." Even unfinished, the breathtaking scope of it's...awful
ness has for thirty years both attracted and repelled
would-be producers and distributors. (script
, zipped Word doc) Just the concept is startling, like some kind of hellish Sad Lib -- Jerry Lewis plays a clown in Auschwitz who leads children to the gas chambers. Harry Shearer, one of the few to see the film: "You are rarely in the presence of a perfect object. This was a perfect object. This movie is so drastically wrong, its pathos and its comedy are so wildly misplaced, that you could not, in your fantasy of what it might be like, improve on what it really is. 'Oh my God!' -- that's all you can say." Can this movie ever be made?

It isn't the circus YOU remember...
Why would the head of Ringling Bros.-Barnum & Bailey hire a former top CIA honcho to torment a hapless freelance writer for eight years? Plus, some goodies on the Felds family - makes for a long
but interesting read...
Interesting... I always knew there was a reason people feared clowns
but now it seems you need to fear the circus??? What has the world come to, I ask you???

Cookie the clown
died yesturday. My favorite clown of the long running 'Bozo Show' recorded in Chicago.
"I am the luckiest guy in the world to have worked at a job I loved, and I'm going to miss it dearly," Brown said upon his retirement in 1994.
