NEW YORK The New York Marathon will not be held Sunday, Mayor Michael Bloomberg said Friday, backtracking just a few hours after he defended the decision to hold it despite heavy criticism as the city struggles back from Superstorm Sandy.

Well gee - insensitive after all these hours? Just now decided? Like no pre-thinking?????
They finally made the right call afer considering only allowing three runners at a time to partake in the event. Oh, and they were all to wear propellers on their heads to generate green energy. Bunch of imbeciles.
Doomberg is a Liberal, there’s never any thinking involved.
That Napoleon was at his house in the Bahamas when NYC got slammed two winters ago.
Good.... now cancel the NBC - BRUJOVI - Obama Concert disguised as a benefit for the victims of Superstorm Sandy.... all this will do is cause people to flood (no pun intended) into Rock Center and cause the police to be distracted from important work....do the concert in two weeks after a needs assessment can be made and they could do a bigger event.
Bloomberg had a flash of good sense? Who would have thought that was still possible?
Thank goodness common sense prevailed.
It’s sad that people who didn’t vote for him have to suffer his stupidity. Hopefully next election .....
I agree. I am glad they are having the fund raiser but think you are right that it would be better to hold it at a later date for exactly the reason you gave. The police officers who would be needed for security purposes have so many other things to be doing now. The intentions of those participating are good...but later would be better.
Hannity was really ripping nanny Bloomberg on his radio show.
Maybe someone was listening.
I don’t think their intentions are good one bit.... they are rushing to do this BEFORE the election.... and the “talent”....Bruce, Bon Jovi (who don’t pay property taxes in NJ because of farm loophole) and Christina Agulara... .are ALL Obama surrogates.... no right leaning entertainers invited. This is pure politics ....watch....guarantee Bruce and Jovi-douch get political.
Do you think he could wait a little longer???
If Mayor-For-Life Doomberg lets NYC have another election for a different mayor...
That does not bother me. We can get just as political. I do think their intentions are good. I base that on how Bruce Springsteen, for one, feels about New Jersey. He does love his mother state. Kind of the way Texans feel about Texas. I am sure most feel that way about the state in which they were born. I know..I know...we Texans are not special...still. We do love Texas.
