Passion Party #511 - Build A Circus Library!

The question I posed was,
"If you had a choice, would you build a circus or a library?"
The answer I got was that it is not a simple dichotomy.
Life gives us many options.  Andrew Carnegie built  great libraries, and he also built concert halls.
As one friend said,
"Does not Shakespeare, or the Bible for that matter, have strong elements of "the circus" in it?...

The greatest works in our libraries point to an integration of spirit, mind and heart. And the greatest entertainers apprehend the spirituality implicit in the bond of people coming together as one."
And another had the best idea:
"I'd build a circus which contains within it's fabric a world class library!!!"
