ZAPATA: By F. Braun


Portrait by F. Braun, courtesy of Louie De Morale



My friend Louie De Morale stopped by the show last night and was gracious enough to share this portrait of his uncle, Ringling Clown College class of '69 graduate and much beloved "road clown" Manuel Marcos "Zapata" Barragan Jr.

We will stick with "Zapata" and save any "Prince Teenie" discussions for another forum ; )
