    The mayor’s political tap dancing is not attractive, but he remains a competent manager of the city. n nThe decision to go ahead with the marathon is sensible. It will be a sign of New York’s returned vitality and boost moral and the economy. The suffering of many small businesses as a result of Sandy, is also not chopped liver. The marathon brings three to four hundred million dollars into the city’s economy, Basements yet flooded and the tragedy of newly discovered victims won’t be helped or eased by renouncing that kind of cash.
