The editor’s assignment was a challenge. Myra Jean found the noise, crowds, and smells distasteful and wasn’t looking forward to going inside.  This circus was more attractive than most, with freshly-painted signs and minimal road grime. The calliope’s blare was echoed by brass horns inside the tent, and a man in a top hat gestured wildly at the door flap. Taking a deep breath, Myra Jean entered.
