Argue that the thousands of volunteers who work -- that could instead be helping the city.
Recover from the storm.
Also as an online petition love those notes quote police fire and other emergency services should not be diverted to the maritime.
During this time of crisis you know we should do -- this -- this Indy.
-- in my you are quite the athletes are so I'm told why do we even need the marathon ever.
Let us let -- this weekend what this -- serve I just I don't I think I ran a marathon in 93 digit that you didn't -- I just so yeah.
Liar yeah I got.
Yeah I got to learn it -- 93 -- -- -- marathon bark at them and well yeah.
-- I think it's kind of silly Bloomberg says just to keep small businesses the simulated stimulated.
That happened -- and reminiscing here folks can move right along I got nothing.
-- -- What will you raise a point.
What -- the small businesses.
Let's have a marathon shoes did you think let's have you marathon picture taken exactly what are they gonna do for the rest of the I didn't think they have one idea -- -- one day where they make a profit you know -- would ever be a story what we say great column that Mayor Bloomberg now.
I think this is a bad call I think this is a nice gesture that you just really answered the question I now but I went for the dumb joke.
I don't mean this is that I think it show in New York bouncing back it's an event is great if we don't do this -- Americans were not.
That's -- good and you know that's a good point I I didn't look at it that way Harris maybe I didn't look at it hard enough.
But -- -- postpone it why not post wanted to the spread one -- how we parade on Sunday I'm double minded on this but I will say this can I have a problem with that starting -- Staten Island because they have suffered some bad storms that there was a way to take it re -- started someplace else.
I would feel full hearted about it.
But the other thing -- -- is how resilient New Yorkers are.
I mean we are really special special people not all this nation not just viewers a -- of the -- like any experience I was what -- I was walking around today.
-- -- Rockefeller plaza and snapped the picture of the ice skating Rick mostly locals today and just proving that you know we have the ability to snap back after this thing I think the marathon is symbolic about.
It be great to have it but we can't started in Staten Island.
-- -- Think -- -- -- -- much more so than the Halloween parade.
Yeah I don't think sex in the streets of drug taking -- the village is really the bounce back.
-- I'm a little wanhatten America yeah.
Yeah I only.
I get big bill and I will agree on this thing.
The Halloween party is the Halloween parade is far more New York -- a bunch of people busting to go running.
26 miles on site people want to leave countries -- yeah isn't even a singular world gets there.
-- have sex in the street after -- -- somebody -- -- dozens purely New York there is notorious.
Et -- we re -- tours go to rolling great normally screen you're.
I'm not I'm not talking -- new -- And they want to hear minority and I -- get the fact that.
We don't want that hurricane wind we'll have to check.
The hurricane is not content and you can understand -- winning and losing is so that's bad you know it's symbolic but the fact of the matter is all these little businesses we want to say they're darts the gun and wow subway systems.
Have a bridges are down these little -- it's -- -- America on Bloomberg thinking.
-- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- Halloween party I got to move on I I think that at both the Halloween party and running -- bowl -- this activities but one is more fun than the other so I would go with the spotlight and city workers -- -- are doing a great job right now and I don't know -- even wanna work on the marathon and I don't mind you know want to -- you know I -- take a break.
