Multiple outlets are reporting—on Twitter—that Sunday’s New York City Marathon has been cancelled due to Hurricane Sandy complications. With many people questioning whether a marathon was a wise use of resources in a time of relative scarcity, this was probably a good decision by the mayor’s office.
Yaaay! I was protesting this so hard. It’s not right to use those resources such as gas, heating stations, and hotel rooms when there are people without heat, clean water, a place to sleep, etc.
