     "Sideshows, the way we know them, extend back in time for a little more than one hundred years. Some of the acts we do are ancient, with documentation as long as four thousand years ago. As performers, we are part of that history, and share the responsibility of continuation.  I would ask all of you to look around, see what’s happening around you, and document it. It is up to you to keep a candle burning!" - Slim Price
