“How can this sporting event possibly be the right thing for the people of New York?”

Its not. Why should they change their ways now. When have they EVER done anything that was truly for the people of New York?

PARTY, PARTY, PARTY!!!!!!

You heard of ‘running with the bulls’? This will be ‘running with New York's sewer rats’. The rat infestation is supposed to be real bad after the water recedes. Not to mention the other ‘rats in NYC.

Doesn’t the marathon require police security? Don’t the police already have enough on their plate in the aftermath of the hurricane?

If children are dumpster diving for food is it because their idiot parents are passed out on the floor on drugs?

This is making the mayor look really bad. I like that.

But on the other hand canceling the marathon would mean millions of dollars in canceled hotel rooms, taxi rides, people buying steaks and wine and cocktails ( and tips for wait staff and bartenders and cabbies), theater tickets, horse rides in Central Park, etc.
The people working in these businesses depend on this money coming in for their lives.

Just because some are suffering doesn’t mean others should not be allowed to not suffer.

Just what they need right now: an additional 40,000 people coming into the city who will require food, shelter, water, police protection, possible medical assistance, etc. How the hell can Bloomberg possibly think this is a good idea?

Why not ask the marathon entrants to run around and help people? Use their energy in a positive and productive way. Give medals to those who perform the most charitable acts or something.

This will not end well, things are getting ugly around NY - gas stations are now rationing gasoline - 3 or 5 gallons per person and the lines are 4 to 5 hours long, I passed a couple on the way to work this morning that were over 2 miles long.

Maybe the marathon participants will run to affected neighborhoods with free blankets, food supplies and flashlights? Problem solved, no?

A lot of the marathon runners are liberal-greenie- vegetarian-climate-change types who think large sodas will eventually kill you - in other words the kind of people that Bloomberg likes to fill the city and associate with. These people have more status and are more important to please than the needs of the ordinary NYers without electricity (my daughter being one of those without electricity).

I can understand the “keep your chin up” attitude. The British continued to go to theater during the bombing of London, but it doesn’t look like a good use of assets in this case.

LOL! Why should he care? I'm sure Bloomberg is warm, dry & cozy with plenty to eat and drink!

For all their talk, didn't Bette Midler and a bunch of other celebrytards have a big Halloween shindig close by while everyone else was dealing with the disaster?

Heaven forbid they take all that swanky food to people who were ill-prepared for Sandy! They are nothing more than a bunch of Slacktavists....and just like their empty-suit president and bloody Bloomberg, the world revolves only around them!.
