Normalcy

It's becoming apparent, and hardly a surprise, that the main issue for the politicians and the media in New York is to present the image of normalcy. Thus Bloomberg's decision to run the NY marathon and have commuters jam the streets to get to office jobs places appearance above reality.

This is now the normal reaction to disasters in the US, paper them over as soon as possible and move on. The fraying infrastructure, exacerbated by climate change, will continue to be patched up to wait for the next disaster, but the possibility of confronting upcoming events before they happen will not even be discussed, at least seriously. The main issue, after all, as we're being constantly told, is debt.

Speaking of normalcy, Blog Simple hopes to resume normal operations, but that is not a promise.

UPDATE: Marathon cancelled! Considering it was starting on Staten Island, it was a no-brainer, even for Bloomberg.

We always hope that things can work normally, you do not promise, but we hope in the effort and you will do it.
