Chicago -- An angry Mayor Richard Daley on Thursday called the Supreme Court's overturning of the Washington D.C. gun ban "a very frightening decision" and vowed to fight vigorously any challenges to Chicago's ban. Поддерживаю мэра. Свобода ношения оружия не должна насаждаться из Вашингтона силой оружия. Чикагский запрет следует немедленно отменить, но вне всякой связи с тем, что провозгласил федеральный суд.

WILMETTE, Ill. - Officials of a north suburban park district say strong racial language in the musical "Ragtime" prompted their decision Wednesday to cancel the show two weeks before it was set to open. "We had grave concerns that people would take the language they heard over the amplified sound system out of context from a performance that was being held in the bowl," Grisamore said.

Grisamore said the district bought the rights to the show in January, but no one involved in the process apparently had seen the show all the way through. As a result, concerns about the language were not relayed until more recently.

Это очень-очень смешно
