Circuses in the hinterland were hilarious. Due to some hereditary miracle in the people who joined the circus, hitherto never-attempted feats of daring were always being performed. High-flying stunts were popular. Herculean physical feats were the standard. But it was the high tech plan to hijack a real plane as it flew over the circus that really hinted at something more than heterodox. It was no hit-and-miss plan. This hijacking was going to be done by locals hired by the circus announcer and remembered as part of his heritage. The hierarchical order of each member of the team was the highlight of the event. That was because the announcer's son, only 17 years old, was directing men ten to twenty years older than himself. In hindsight, all agreed that this was the obvious reason for the hiccup.
