CIRCUS LIFE, UNDER THE BIG TOP WORLD: This hasn't been a good week for the Ringling Brothers and Barnum & Bailey Circus.

First, aerial acrobat Dessi Espana fell 35 feet to her death during a stunt in front of a St. Paul crowd on Saturday.

Then today came word that Spanky the Clown (real name: Thomas Riccio) was arrested as part of a online child pornography investigation. Now, I don't like engaging in stereotypes too often, but if ever there was a clown who just looked like a child-molesting pervert, it's this guy.
