  1. Time to bring back Colosseums! We’d love to watch these dummies duke it out where the croud is safe and animals finish off the animals in the end.

    1. Is the sound of freedom a joke to you? I served a long 4 months in the USN after suffering an injury in boot camp show some respect, “brother”.

  2. Wonder if this will actually affect the crowds at the fair? Is it changing anyone’s plans to not going? Open threats like these, while they can be concerning, we see them way to frequently. I don’t live in fear and will not allow my child live in fear.

    What do you think?
