    OK, I know this is overly simplistic, but...

    Why don't they just shut down NYC, NJ, for a few days (except for essential services) to enable some clean up and repairs? I can't believe that all those people I saw trying to get into the city have jobs that are so important that they can't just simply stay home for a couple of days.

    And still having that marathon is just ludicrous (sp). Heard that people that were lucky enough to find a hotel room for a few days are getting kicked out so runners/spectators can have a place to stay. Just unbelievable...

    Don't know that I agree that shutting down the world's largest economic center is a good idea. Surely however, many of those workers climbing over each other are non-essential.



    The Mayor with his marathon IS a big mistake; especially so close to the ravages of the storm. Waiting a month or so would have served him better as a morale booster.


    New York city slickers--what do you expect?

    They are starting to show impatience already and it has only been a couple days.

    What after a couple weeks and see what the mood is.

    Not everything gets done in a New York minute.

    I have seen 3 altercations already on gas lines. Best one near Coney Island involved a honda cutting the line in front of a "Sopranos" type in a Escalade. The honda got pushed into a dumpster to the applause of everyone on line. The guy said " you make a freakin stink and we'll put you and that piece of junk INTO the dumpster.
