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 ; )

Another personal friend. Gone to fast. Still missed.

Can anyone tell us how to get in touch with David Nicksay, dear friend of our dear late brother Zapata? Call Henry Barragan, brother of Sarasota's Circus Church, at Martha's Catholic Church (941) 366-4210 & please leave contact phone. Thanks.
