Feld Entertainment, the producer of Ringling Brothers Barnum And Bailey Circus, was fined $270, 000 by the United States Department of Agriculture for their treatment of animals.
Now, I personally have nothing against Feld Entertainment, they've been good partners and friends for over 30 years. BUT, it would seem that when your name is plastered all over the place, you might want to lie low for a day or two.
Well, that didn't happen. Just this afternoon, I got an e mail from Feld Motorsports, a part of the Feld Empire, inviting me to an event in Chicago, which is a bit far from home base in St. Louis, but that's another story. Pardon the funky formatting, their e mail is a little wide for this space.
If I were handling the e mail at the Feld Empire, I'm thinking I'd hold off on this mailing for a day or three. Let the stink of the animal abuse situation go away and then invite families out for a night of big giant trucks crushing things. Just because an e mail blast is scheduled doesn't mean it can't be REscheduled.
Am I missing something here? Please, I'd love to hear your comments.
