From The Chicago Tribune: Telling The Living Truth About The Unicorn October 18, 1985|By Phil Vettel. When the Ringling Brothers and Barnum & Bailey Circus opened last Friday at Rosemont Horizon, it marked the Chicago debut of ``The Living Unicorn,`` the creature Ringling Brothers introduced last year in Houston and which has been the object of controversy ever since. Most people know the history of that controversy--the charges by animal-protection groups of cruelty to animals, consumer fraud and related improprieties on the part of the circus; the noncommital exoneration by the U.S. Department of Agriculture (which declined to label the beast a unicorn but did confirm that he was being well treated); the full-page rebuttal ads the circus ran that urged fans, ``Don`t let the Grinches steal the Fantasy!`` What many people probably don`t know is that this circus stop is the second Chicago appearance for the Living Unicorn. Three years ago, Lancelot, as he then was known, was wowing the locals at King Richard`s Faire. I had the chance to meet Lancelot back then, and I`m delighted to see him making it in the big time, even though, like too many locals-turned-celebrities, he has chosen to forsake his roots.
