Of Clown Pilgrimages and Empty Seats

You learn something new every day, unless you're a hard-core Republican or Democrat. For my part, I learned yesterday about the annual Pilgrimage of the Clowns to the Basilica of Guadalupe in Mexico City.

Here are a few photos of the event, culled from the Web:

I wonder if this is why there were so many empty seats in this picture ...

and this one ...

Coincidence? I think not.

Have a good day. More thoughts tomorrow.
