Good day, All, on this Saturday before the election. And the weekend when we have to turn back the clocks (ugh!!!!!). And, in case you didn't already know, I hate these time changes as much as I hate the endless election season. Oh, well--as the old saying goes: what can't be cured must be endured.
So they finally cancelled the New York Marathon. On the one hand I can see the argument for holding the race as scheduled--it gives a sense of continuity and resilience. But then it does give an unfortunate impression that recovery was taking second place.
