You need to remember that the marathon has been a NY staple for over 40 years and as stupid as one may think of the runners who flew here to
participate (myself included on the stupidity angle), many train for years and it bespeaks their dedication to the enterprise.
I, for the most part, are a supporter of Bloomberg. When Rudy Gulliano stepped down, the city was in fairly good shape (crime-wise, economically,
etc.) but could have easilly been ruined by the wrong person. Although I haven't agreed with all of Bloomberg's decisions over the years, I think
he's done a pretty good job at what I consider one of the hardest and most mine-filled jobs in the country. JMHO.
