Yeah imagine holding the marathon in the midst of great damage and devastation - holding the marathon even though resources would be pulled away from recovery work. Kicking people out of Hotels ( people whose homes are destroyed or at the moment unlivable ) - so that people can rent them for purposes of visiting for the marathon.

So Sorry - the marathon is not a priority at the moment.

Sanity has prevailed for a moment - marathon canceled

BTW - sorry to those of you who made the trip only to be told after arrival that the marathon had been canceled. Would have been nice if sanity had prevailed earlier - like the day the storm made landfall and all of the destruction became real rather then wondered about - just think if rational people had been in charge the cancellation announcement could have been made days ago.
