KOCH would never do this. He would be...NO WAY! We here in NY take care of our own.
I just heard on the radio they are asking NYers...LIFELONG residents of the great city to leave hotels to make room for the runners. I wanna go postal im so pissed right now.
My Aunt is in her 60's, lives on the 37th floor of a high ris and has no power or electric and we should be concernded about some runner from Texas?
Am I wrong to be pissed? Where's Bprgo, 32 and countless others that I am sure have no power. What about the NYers in Brooklyn, SI, etc...
Sorry...needed to vent.
NY IS OPEN FOR BUSINESS.
Southp[ark you know better than anyone that there must be so many organizations just waiting for a reason to cancel on NYC. Bloomberg is protecting the commerce, now that the people are safe enough to dig out.
It's a Pro marathon and the fans might need the distraction; less weekend warriors will make for a compelling event (possibly)
