I am disgusted

Watching the coverage of Sandy about my old hometown of Staten Island, NY makes me sick.  I cannot believe how people are starving, flooded and basically forgotten.  The wonderful politicians of NY seem to forget that Staten Island is part of New York.  In the past, every snow storm that occurs it is the last place to be cleared.  So it shouldn't surprise me to see how the residents are not being helped.  The Mayor is allowing a marathon to take place which starts in Staten Island.  Oh yes let's have that happen while people have no power, phone, gas, food or any basic necessities.  After the SI borough President went on television and basically called out the Mayor and everyone else, magically the Red Cross was due to show up as well as FEMA.  That shouldn't happen.  I can only imagine how long it will take to get the help that's needed.  It's disgusting.
