Recently you stated that at one town you played in that the town did not want the circus "people" stay overnight. Are there many cities that have those restrictions? What is the reason for it? I thought that only France was exporting "undesirables"?!That kind of thinking/mentality belongs to the Dark Ages. Well, perhaps the clowns should be banned..they have a way of stirring things up. :)

Unfortunately all sorts of people export "undesirables"... the US and the rest of the "first world" nations leading the way, as you are well aware over there on the border.
I think it is a city ordinance voted after some people on a circus misbehaved, but the reasons don't matter, really; as you said, it's the mentality, the insider/outsider thing - and we circus people do exactly the same thing when we bundle up all "town people" in one bag...
We need more inclusion in our suffering world.
To answer your second question, we haven't come across any other town with the same ordinance while we've been on this show.
