    @duke. I do not blame the mayor for wanting to hold a marathon anymore than I blame my cat when it kills birds and rabbits. Nature will do as nature does.
    Workers B Safe.

    The people in New York City will appreciate the help. I wish people would stop saying bad things about Mayor Bloomberg. I was in a restaurant in Atmore last light and heard these people talking at the next table how the Mayor had lost his mind holding a marathon and a racial slur in regards to the Mayor and a dollar. Mayor Bloomberg is just attempting to cheer the citizens up with a marathon. You people enjoyed the recent runs in Atmore and Bratt did you not?

    We really appreciate the help! Our neighborhood in Plymouth Meeting typically loses power for a few hours after heavy thunderstorms, and we really expected to be without power for several days. It was great to have the lights on again in a matter of hours. We’ve been seeing trucks and crews from lots of other states. Thanks!
