FROM GARY PAYNE---


A big thank you to all who helped get the word out that extremists were working to ban the elephant guide tool - thus the circus - in Fulton County (Atlanta) Georgia!
Thank you to the circus fans who personally attended the meeting in Atlanta...and to the dozens who wrote letters, sent emails and faxes, and made phone calls.

American circus goers (and there are millions of us) won the right to "choose" to attend (or not) a circus featuring our favorite stars - the elephants! How sad that we live
in a society that has created profitable businesses around allegations of abuse, seldom backed up with empirical evidence.

We will be campaign against destructive legislation again, likely in Atlanta, and elsewhere, as long as there are those who would take away our rights to enjoy a circus with performing animals. We must be vigilant and steadfast. We advocate for the circus, for the welfare (not "rights") of animals and for elephants, by putting the facts forward to contrast with the fiction. Common sense and logic usually prevail.

WE THE PEOPLE must not allow an elite few to legislate our rights away. In San Francisco this week, the elite few legislated HAPPY MEALS out of existence. The people no
longer have the right to choose! What's next? Will we ban high school football? (injury is inevitable) Swimming has to go... (too dangerous) Ixnay Birthday Cake (all that sugar)

YOU deserve the thanks for answering the call to action! YOUR participation is swift and effective. YOU have made a difference again!
