Barnum would have been proud…

Cindy: I just deleted yet another spammer’s attempt to advertise via a blog comment, but in retrospect, maybe I should have left this one. It was attached to our post about Candace Fleming’s biography The Great and Only Barnum: The Tremendous, Stupdendous Life of Showman P. T. Barnum and was for a web site offering “quick and easy ways to make money.” Barnum surely would have appreciated the attempt to make a quick buck, but on the other hand,  he did try to provide entertainment for doing so. Spammers, you should read Fleming’s biography. You could learn something.
