    it wasn't their decision. And I have to admit that not all of Bloomberg's intransigence was due to his innate arrogance; the marathon also raises a lot of money for the city, which we could use right about now (that said, I still think he should have canceled it Tuesday).

    •  I don't. (4+ / 0-)

      The mayor & the organizers are the ones who lived down to the stereotype -- which is the thing about stereotypes, they're not really about who they're supposed to be about

      I just wish they had said this to begin with. People used airline miles to get there, used vacation days, etc. This is them making lemonade. But if they had done the right thing to begin with, that would have been better.

      •  Oh, I agree (1+ / 0-)

        I would have been better for everyone if they had cancelled early in the week. But Bloomberg knows best. Always.
