At first I thought, "How dare they hold the race while they're still pulling bodies out of the East River?" Then I thought, they do that pretty much every other Wednesday, so who's to notice.

He'll take credit for getting it cancelled. Like Trump and the birth certificate

Usain Bolt is Jamaican, not Kenyan.

Usain Bolt is also a sprinter, not a long distance runner. Even the Europeans do better than Africa in sprinting. 0 medals for Africa in the 400m and less in 2012.


Put a flat screen TV in their hands and watch them sprint for the gold!

poot_rootbeer: Bloomberg still insisted that holding the race would not require diverting resources from the recovery effort.

IT ALREADY HAS, FARKING SKELETOR-FACED DWARF ASSHOLE.

Every gallon of diesel fuel set aside to run the generators powering the big clock at the Central Park finish line is a gallon that isn't being used to keep space heaters running in buildings with no power. Every bottle of water reserved for The Poland Spring® Hydration Zone at mile 17 is a bottle of water that newly homeless families in Breezy Point would desperately like to have to drink right now.

Guys like Chris Christie, Andrew Cuomo, and Cory Booker behaved like leaders this week. Mike Bloomberg behaved like a CEO.

For the record:

The political system of America is currently broken.

Money has become entrenched, much like WWI soldiers became entrenched. Many died needlessly. Allegory.

However, of the world humans will most want to inhabit on earth, President Obama is the clear choice; to vote otherwise undermines humanity, and if you care more about business than the people it serves, you have lost touch with the reality of earth business, man, and your business should be broken and destroyed from space.

I can help with that.

No no no.. It's easy, he'll just say that Bloomberg purposely waited until all the participants were there so that he could take all their money and then send them on their way. Without their 48oz sodas too.


People are paying attention to Rush Limbaugh again?

Atypical Person Reading Fark: Honest Bender: How nice of him to wait until 2 days before the marathon to cancel it... I'm sure no one traveled to attend...

They're reporting that 40,000 out of 47,000 are already there - living in their hotel rooms, paying money, eating out, etc. So the money came, but no race.


Yeah this is bordering on shenanigans to me. Probably no one would have been able to get plane tickets refunded, but hotels typically have 24 hour cancellation policies, correct? Plus yeah all the extra spending.

Not many people will biatch I'm sure, as they were planning on spending that money anyway and they're still in New Yorks and can sightsee or whatever, but waiting until now to cancel is very shady.

I don't know, the death toll from the storm hasn't stopped growing yet. Can I get back to you in a week or two after more bodies have been recovered?
 
2012-11-02 08:07:45 PM
This is the part that gets me: Bloomberg still insisted that holding the race would not require diverting resources from the recovery effort.

Does he really think his city is already recovered to the point where they don't need every single resource that can be made available? Or does he seriously think that the generators, supplies, and energy spent by volunteers couldn't be spent cleaning up the city, or that the traffic diversions won't add misery to an already messed up traffic grid. Why the hell would he want a bunch of tourists flocking to a city that's still packed with refugees and power outages and closed stores?

Absolutely. In two weeks let me know how many people freeze to death due to a lack of diesel fuel (claim 1) or die for lack of drinking water (claim 2). The race wasn't cancelled so it's fuel and water could be funneled to people who are dying due to a lack of either.
 
2012-11-02 08:22:30 PM
Good.

Does this mean the race organizers are going to donate all that bottled water that the runners were planning to dump on their heads to the poor New Yorkers who have been without food/water/shelter since Monday?

Whatever.

Look, man, even if you win the protracted eelection, Romney/Ryan, you sully mind.

President Obama leads until January One, and you demonstrate dumb everyday by trumpeting otherwise.

Show respect now, or you can claim none, jackhats. Seriously.

I hope the electorate hand you a stinger.

Good call, but like others posted he waited too late. I can see some airlines allowing people to reschedule the flight, and hotels would allow cancellations, but at least NY gets some sales tax out of the runners who are already there and/or can't cancel.

Oh, and the hotel room tax. They'll still get $2.00 + 5.875% of the rent per day per room rented.

I never claimed either was a life-or-death situation. Why are you pretending I did?

In terms of who needs that fuel and water more: New Yorkers need it more than visiting jocks. That simple.
