Good news - I hope - , just heard on three news bulletins that the Marathon has now been cancelled, by ;Mr. Bloomberg'.

Know what would I think make the citizens happier? If the marathoners were put to work. Let them put their stamina to good use, for whatever needs to be done that requires light-footing over debris and wreckage.
Kidding aside, I'm glad the few runners who were interviewed in the ESPN news article were understanding about the cancellation.

some politician from Staten Island told his constituents to stop sending money to the Red Cross since they weren't doing a single thing to help the folks stuck on SI.
The next day, the Red Cross showed up to help.
I spoke with a guy from Staten Island today and he said that, while his house was fine, the area that was hardest hit is horrific. One friend of his has a boat in his house. That guy's neighbor found a dead child in his back yard and so on.

I take it you have read the above......frightening ain't the word for it
This man is insane, I am sure of it. He sees himself as some sort of dictator who knows what is best for his minions. It amazes me that so many Americans do not see who and what he is and represents. He is a clear and current danger to our liberties and to the American way of life. This is exactly the sort of man that our founders, while writing the constitution, knew would come along, so they wrote things in there we could use to protect the republic.
