Ferdie to Bob

    Dear Bob, here are some photos of my life here on the campus of Concordia Seminary. I love kids, working with the grounds crew, swimming, playing with my dog friends, and especially my own family people.

    Wonder where the MSM is at on reporting this tragedy? Kind of reminds you of New Orleans and Katrina, except the race of those impacted is generally different.
    Bloomberg has to get the boob of the year award for this one.


    The decision was not reached capriciously, and I'd support them either way it went. The NYC Marathon is the most unifying event held in the city, and the support it gets from its residents is unparalleled. The marathon will generate $340 million in revenue (you think local businesses are interested in that?) and the NYRR and ING have already donated $2.6 million toward relief efforts. Tough call to make, but I know the mayor, with input from Mary and David, is making an informed decision.


    Apparently their decision wasn't as informed as I hoped it would be. Publicizing that the event was still on and then canceling less than 48 hours before it was set to begin is very poor public relations.


    Cancelling this late reaffirms Blomberg's boob of the year award. Now, thousands of runners flying and driving into the city will be greated with oops, sorry.
    They will still run the event. Just a little later.
