Reversing his earlier position, Mayor Bloomberg decides to cancel this year's marathon."The biggest question was transporting thousands of runners to the starting line on Staten Island, which was ravaged by the storm."
Outrage had been building steadily; many questioned the logic of providing food, water, sanitation, resources and law enforcement presence to the event participants & spectators when so many residents are struggling without those very items.
