NYC marathon Sunday, Nov 4

Postby Shorty » Thu Nov 01, 2012 9:16 pm

Mayor Bloomberg says the NYC marathon Sunday, Nov 4, will be held. Unbelievable! Think of all the staff and police that will be needed for that. Isn't there anything better they could do, like say, rescue the people stranded without power, food, and water? Help the city recover? Pump out the subways?

They decided to cancel it after all.

Some sense finally from the pea brains. Not only the police time was a problem. They actually had a series of generators lined up to run the electrical equipment for the Marathon. Yes, generators for this, but no generators for shivering residents sitting in dark and cold houses and flats. Bloomberg is a fucking idiot. It should have been cancelled before this storm hit.
