There have been plenty of past examples, of course, but this one takes the cake:
Fresh off his “climate disruption”-driven endorsement of President Obama , New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg has chosen to divert critical food supplies and power generators from desperate residents of Staten Island to Sunday’s New York City Marathon. Gothamist reports :
Greg Pollowitz on this disgrace :
The above link  is an interactive map of those without power in NYC; the picture is a close up of eastern Staten Island where Sunday’s NYC marathon begins. It’s just vile that Mayor Bloomberg thinks the marathon should go on with this many New Yorkers still in harm’s way.
Indeed. It’s cold, wet, and people are without power , and/or are homeless, displaced, hungry, scared, neighborhoods are being looted, etc. But let’s divert critical resources to the NYC Marathon!
If you’re looking for nominees for Clueless Wonder of the Year, Bloomberg should be at the top of your list. Shameless.
Update – 11:12 AM: Love this (via Jim Geraghty ): Marathon Runners Form Protest Group To Spurn Starting Line And Volunteer On Staten Island Instead .
