chinese acrobats at the homeless shelter

Talk about poor hospitality... In Dallas, a group acrobats from China were left stranded when a circus promoter from Wisconsin failed to meet the performers when they arrived at Dallas-Fort Worth International Airport: Chinese acrobats end up in homeless shelter. They spent their first two nights in the U.S. at a homeless shelter. The promoter who bailed on them said he had "run out of money," and made a call to the local shelter asking for someone to pick the acrobats up at the airport. Not a great way to kickoff a tour, but acrobats seemed to be okay with it. That's dedication. I'd be seriously unhappy. The situation has since been resolved, and they're apparently on their way and will be coming to your city soon.
