Hours After Saying Marathon Will Go Ahead, Mayor Bloomberg Cancels It

Tyler Durden's picture




 

Supposedly this is big news, so we probably have to report it. Just out from the NY Mayor's office:

... and just as the residents of some NY boroughs were eagerly looking forward to the New York version of the hunger games.

At least we know it is not Obama's fault: he just got the mayor's endorsement for promoting climate change.

Full statement:

“The Marathon has been an integral part of New York City’s life for 40 years and is an event tens of thousands of New Yorkers participate in and millions more watch.  While holding the race would not require diverting resources from the recovery effort, it is clear that it has become the source of controversy and division.  The marathon has always brought our city together and inspired us with stories of courage and determination.  We would not want a cloud to hang over the race or its participants, and so we have decided to cancel it. We cannot allow a controversy over an athletic event – even one as meaningful as this – to distract attention away from all the critically important work that is being done to recover from the storm and get our city back on track.  The New York Road Runners will have additional information in the days ahead for participants.”

And just a few short hours earlier:

And spread the word.

You guys are indeed correct. Even Mayor McFraudStreet couldn't get an iron-clad guarantee that iEdit could snuff the images of marathoners having to obviously zigzag, dodge & otherwise negotiate over bloated corpses littering the course, along with scenes of gasoline & bread line rioting blazing in the background.

A few years back, many people didn't "get" it when I would say that money can be a wonderful tool, but makes for a horrible master.

Now, many of those same people completely understand that point, as they ponder what's happened to the country & globe.

Bloomberg & his ilk are all about the money, and they don't even have the ability to sound human when speaking of human things (in a ruse that's a defense of what was prior steadfast insistence that the race would go on... he covered his ears and eyes and saw visions of $$$ and la-la-la-la-la dancing in his head).

Yup. And because they can run, they probably got through the "quicke Frisk" line at the airports too.

Priorities, overall, look totally bizzarro from where I sit. The wuld is going nutz.

Plus, the only reason they push running is that they know running is bad for humans. Especially in shoes. Especially on fricking pavement.

But New Yawk....crazy city...I always scored a $150 dollar ticket (minimum) every time I was in New Yawk and even did a late night visit to the Brooklyn Navy yard (now that is a shudder inducing memory if I ever have one), paying $300, on a student budget, to recover my $800 dollar Olds Cutlass. :-) 

But I don't hold that against new yawkers. Its time to pull together, help your neighbours, basic stuff. And stay warm because I hear it's getting colder.

Is there any move by ZH to get some money/other action going NY's way?

This is just like the Valerie Jarrett quote, or the "you didn't built it" meme.

Problem is, around here politicians are completely deaf. They roll out 'New & Improved' Service X that nobody wants in order to replace Service Y (that everybody wants). Then the little people bitch about the loss of service as well as the increased expense at a council meeting. Heads nod, the little people are thanked for providing valuable feedback, then the leader bangs the gavel, issues a proclamation and proceeds on like nothing happened.

Every year for the last ten, I hear about nothing but budget cuts, yet the budget and services continue to expand.

Ooooh.... looky, it's finally beer-thirty!

i think you will revise your opinion of port-o-potties once they are full.  you wonT want them to stay, once they are full and overflowing.

Oh wait, ... were you thinking some shit-trucks were supposed to navigate the NYC gridlock to empty them?

There were people actively planning on protesting and sabatoging the marathon.  They probably got word of it and it's the real reason for the cancellation.  Having cops bust open ppls head during a marathon is probably bad publicity.

Perhaps the Mayor can move those huge generatos to the transfer stations that have gasoline and cannot pump it into tanker trucks because they have no electricity, which is where they should have been sent to begin with.
