Do You Think The NYC Marathon Should Take Place This Weekend?

Mayor Bloomberg has made the decision that the New York City Marathon will take place this coming weekend. This decision has sparked much
controversy. The Mayor called off the home opener for the New Jersey Nets vs.
the New York Knicks at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn last night. However, he
says the marathon will go on.

Many runners who had planned on running the marathon either
cannot get here to the area to  run it or
simply are refusing to because they don’t agree with the Mayors decision. Many
also believe the conditions 
aren’t safe or sanitary.  Some areas of New York City are still
experiencing levels of high water, power outages and transportation chaos.
