How could it make this distant flight?
You came: the maple woods were green.
You went: the pass was black with night.”

Vince Vaughn is always fun for me to watch. I like his style and his particular brand of humor strikes a chord with me. As David Wozniak, a man that in his youth, donated sperm and is now the father of over 500 children (over 100 of which file suite to reveal his identity), Vaughn downplays some of that humor in favor of trying to really tell a touching story.

When we think of circuses and carnivals we picture manic clowns, bustling crowds, animal acts, overpriced rides and unfair games of supposed chance and skill.

These loud and colorful family-friendly events once had a much darker, seedier side. The biggest attractions at many places was the freak show.

I am an introvert that can be an extrovert if it is absolutely, positively necessary. I tend to spend my time reading, writing, exploring the ideas that pop into my brain to see if they have popped into anyone else's; in other words, I live my life predominantly in my mind. And you?
