One would have to be made of stone to not be moved by tonight's ABC 20-20 segment on the return (and final departure) of Siegfried & Roy...Las Vegas showmen extraordinaire. As an animal rights activist, I'm still not convinced that large fauna should be kept in captivity and made to perform for our entertainment. But I would bet $1000 Vegas dollars on the fact that every tiger S&R ever raised for their long running show was well cared for and absolutely loved.
At the end of the day, this little segment proves something that we TV folks at The Flaming Nose have long understood. The curtain must rise...the show must go on...and if the end is inevitable, let there at least be a grand finale.
God Bless the great showmen Siegfried, Roy and Montecour.
