The feuding heirs to the Ringling Bros and Barnum & Bailey Circus dynasty are to go to court over a brutal fight that allegedly broke out between brother and sister as they mourned the death of an aunt.

Former gossip columnist Karen Feld alleges that her businessman brother Kenneth, who now runs the legendary circus, gave her brain damage when he ordered her to be thrown out of a gathering of grieving relatives.

Take that back! :p:D

Sarasota has lots of circus folk here. There's Ringling Blvd, the Ringling School of Art and Design, the Ringling Museum (with circus museum and the estate of the Ringlings) and on and on.

I thought it was odd when I moved to Sarasota. SR subscribes to "Sarasota" magazine. In the areas where the apparent franchise (we had St Louis mag also) has their society weddings, etc, they feature the wedding of a trapeze artist and circus clown.

This is an odd place. Nothing would surprise me with the circus people. Our realtor was "the pretty" in a circus act, but had injured her back. She wasn't exactly the best buyer's agent in the world, but had been recommended by the firm in St Louis that had sold our home (indirectly---had been referred to their local affiliate).
