Low status of magicians?

Discussions of new films, books, television shows, and media indirectly related to magic and magicians. For example, there may be a book on mnemonics or theatrical technique we should know or at least know about.

Low status of magicians?

Everyone must be aware of the growing Creepy Clowns crisis.
Netflix chat show host Chelsea Handler warned us that genuine clowns need to be protected.

She rephrased a famous poem by concentration camp survivor Martin Niemöller.

The original poem went:

"First they came for the Socialists, and I did not speak out—
Because I was not a Socialist.

Because I was not a Jew.
Then they came for me—and there was no one left to speak for me."

Then they came for the mimes, and they couldn't speak out.
Then they came for the magicians, and nobody gave a sxxt..."
