This story about clowns being banned from making balloon animals caught my attention immediately today. Not only because I have a “clown phobia” (can you say John Wayne Gacey?) but because I have a severe latex allergy too. I have written about my allergy a bunch on my other blog. Not only to draw awareness to this problem, but because there have been a few soldiers who developed the allergy while on active duty. This also brings up peanut allergies as well -major problem for many – esp. soldiers & kids.
