Genius! NYC Leaves Marathon Generators in Central Park, Residents Lash Out at Bloomberg

Labels: »
That Mike Bloomberg is looking more presidential by the day, huh?
What a run-around!
The city left more than a dozen generators desperately needed by cold and hungry New Yorkers who lost their homes to Hurricane Sandy still stranded in Central Park yesterday.
And that’s not all — stashed near the finish line of the canceled marathon were 20 heaters, tens of thousands of Mylar “space” blankets, jackets, 106 crates of apples and peanuts, at least 14 pallets of bottled water and 22 five-gallon jugs of water.
This while people who lost their homes in the Rockaways, Coney Island and Staten Island were freezing and going hungry.
Michael Murphy, of Staten Island, who had no power and no heat, said yesterday, “We needed 100 percent of the resources here.”
“If those generators were here, we maybe could have had some light for the cleanup effort,” he said. “Those generators would really have come in handy.’’
Larry Gold, 61, of Rockaway Park, who has difficulty breathing, can’t use his oxygen tank without electricity.
“I need power to breathe,’’ he said.
Breathing, it’s really overrated, especially when a blowhard like Bloomberg needs so much oxygen.
Meanwhile, the beloved mayor braved the elements to visit some New Yorkers, where he was warmly greeted.
ok, it's horrible, and I'm not in love with Islam enabling Bloomberg, but this is not really his fault. I'm reposting it however
