The decision to divert critical resources (generators, police) from the rescue effort to the NYC Marathon is unconscionable.
What the hell is Bloomberg thinking?
I'm going to roll that back a little, Ed Koch just got on the air and defended the continuation of the marathon, apparently there is no shortage of generators, they're readily available.
I'm not unsympathetic to the argument that the marathon acts as a morale boost.
I'm still skeptical the police can't be used, however, I just got a dispatch from a fb friend saying they need people to monitor emergency work sites, direct traffic, etc.
