Ringling Brothers to take final bow

The Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Circus has been entertaining audiences for a long time. Its history goes back 146 years — to about the time when professional baseball emerged and before Coca-Cola was invented. But this substantial chapter in American history comes to a close on Sunday.
