How Michael Bloomberg’s stance on the NYC Marathon evolved throughout the day

  • first "They’re running this race to help New York City and the donations from all the runners in the clubs will be a big relief to our efforts."
  • then "You have to keep going and doing things and you have to grieve. You can cry and you can laugh, all at the same time. That’s what human beings are good at."
  • now "We would not want a cloud to hang over the race or its participants, and so we have decided to cancel it. We cannot allow a controversy over an athletic event—even one as meaningful as this—to distract attention away from all the critically important work that is being done to recover from the storm and get our city back on track.”
