I am writing to respond to the review on Ringling Brothers and Barnum and Bailey Circus. My first question would be; "Whose kids?". I have a 3-year-old-son, who I took to see his first circus on July 16th in San Diego. He laughed at the clowns, sat silently while watching the acrobats and applauded the trained animal acts. True, he did lose interest during the second half, but his normal bed time is around 8 p.m., and it was approaching 9:30 p.m. The point is: He was entertained, and quite frankly, so was I. The circus appeals to the child in all of us. What exactly is John Godfrey looking for in a circus?

If, sometimes, the local music scene seems stymied by its own internecine competitiveness, a new compilation of local music offers a refreshing perspective. "Staring at the Sun" features two songs each by 10 of San Diego's lesser-known bands, but the project grew out of the self-reliant philosophy of one of its better-known groups, Dark Globe. "We're very big on 'product' (salable recordings)," Dark Globe's John Gire said in a recent phone conversation.
