NEW YORK (AP) — Songs from the new musical celebrating Gloria and Emilio Estefan will have the honor of kicking off the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade, but the couple will be far from the giant balloons.
By Mary Wisniewski CHICAGO (Reuters) - Chicago was calm on Wednesday, a day after the release of a graphic video showing the fatal shooting of a black teenager by a white policeman who was charged with murder, a sharp contrast to the outbursts of violence in Baltimore and Ferguson, Missouri, following the deaths of black people by police. Authorities in the city of 2.7 million people had braced for violence, but peaceful demonstrations so far have led to just five arrests with more protests planned for later on Wednesday, one at the Chicago Thanksgiving Day parade on Thursday and another on Friday. Protests at Chicago City Hall and the criminal courthouse were sparsely attended on Wednesday, and a small protest, with fewer than a dozen people, had begun at evening rush hour in downtown Chicago.
