The Circus is Still in Town

Those wacky MOCs (Members of Congress to you) may be gone on recess this week (how quaint that they call it that, so kindergarten of them), but that doesn’t mean that there isn’t a circus still in town.

Today at 1pm you can see actual elephants trudging along the “Pachyderm Parade” on the Hill, disembarking from a special circus train at Union Station and heading up to the DC Armory as part of the Ringling Brothers sojourn there this week, and then next week at MCI-I-mean-Verizon Center.

Now I was seriously traumatized as a child at the Ringling Brothers & Barnum & Bailey Circus (“Hey, that isn’t a real unicorn! It’s a goat! Whaaaaaa!!!!”) but if you are fine with the spectacle of real elephants on the Hill instead of the usual kind, head on over.
