For once, I think I agree with the wingnuts. Having the NYC marathon while half the city is still underwater, without power, and barely making it is criminally irresponsible.
I have no idea what Bloomberg or, for that matter, the Marathon organizers are thinking.
*** Update ***
Looks like they came to their damned senses:
After days of intensifying pressure from runners, politicians and the general public to cancel the New York City Marathon in the wake of Hurricane Sandy, city officials and the event’s organizers decided Friday afternoon that the race would not be held Sunday, according to a person familiar with the decision.
Bloomberg seriously lost the plot on this one.
