With Mayor Michael Bloomberg deciding to cancel Sunday's New York City Marathon, the overwhelming consensus is in support of the decision.

New York City Marathon Will Not Be Held Sunday - NYTimes.com:
"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."
