Many people were up in arms earlier today when they heard that funds in New York were being diverted from cleaning up the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy.
Where exactly were these funds going??
They were going to the New York City Marathon!

Every effort should be on cleaning, rebuilding and repairing the city so people can finally get back to a normal life.
