I thought about boycotting this week altogether. I consider myself to be a bit of an animal rights activist. I have very little tolerance for the inhumane treatment of living creatures. The abuse of animals in circuses disgusts me. I didn't want to do a manicure celebrating Ringling Brothers and such type operations knowing they're guilty of such terrible things. Rather than boycotting altogether, I decided to go with Cirque du Soleil. Their performers are human and there by choice. No harm done.
