New York Mayor Marathon Mad

Bloomberg discussed the marathon Friday while giving a briefing on the storm.
He says New York has to show that “we are here and we are going to recover.” Bloomberg says the marathon will “give people something to cheer about” after a “dismal week.”
Bloomberg has come under fire for pressing ahead with the marathon in a city still reeling from Superstorm Sandy. Some New Yorkers say holding the 26.2-mile race would be insensitive and divert police and other important resources when many are still suffering.
Bloomberg says his predecessor, Rudy Giuliani (joo-lee-AH’-nee), made the right decision to let the marathon continue after the September 2001 terrorist attack.
