Pardon our appearance. Please enjoy this smoking clown.

It's time to spruce it up around here! I'm experimenting with new banners over the next day and figuring out which looks the best. Some other design features might change as well. So if things look occasionally weird, it's most likely only temporary. Thanks for your patience!

In the meantime, here's a picture of a clown smoking under a no smoking sign during a performance of Ringling Bros. at Madison Square Garden (the one that used to be on 49th/50th Streets), 1953 (Courtesy LIFE Google images, photo by Cornell Capa)

  1. That's likely Emmett Kelly, a famous clown who performed with Ringling Brothers at MSG in the 50s. I recall seeing him there.
