It's looking like the Boston Marathon will be rescheduled

From the Boston Globe:

It would be the first time in 124 years that the marathon — which regularly draws about a million spectators and thousands of visitors from around the world — wouldn’t be held as planned. Postponement is preferable because canceling the marathon would mean a potential economic loss to the city of more than $200 million.

The desire was to hold the race on a long weekend, but Labor Day was deemed too challenging because it is peak time for college students to move into dormitories, many of which are located along the marathon route. Columbus Day, another target, is regarded as impossible because the Chicago Marathon is scheduled for Sunday, October 11.

Just saw on FB that Joe has been assigned SS detail

Apparently it’s all over Twitter

Another reason to vote for Joe

It's the only way we can have WH dogs. Joe has 2 german shepherd rescues, Champ and Major. Bernie and Trump don't have dogs.

To me the biggest shock of the night is MA

MA voters, who are you voting for today?

Joe Biden is now the youngest male running

Why is the MSM giving the nomination to Sanders when only 3 states have voted?

They're acting like he's the nominee

Trump kids vs Bloomberg kids

Michael Bloomberg has 2 daughters, Emma and Georgina:

Georgina's life seems to be centered around animals, whether in her equestrian career, philanthropic pursuits, or home life. She told Gotham magazine that she has several rescued animals—five dogs, a pig, a goat, two mules, and two miniature horses, to be exact—in addition to the horses she rides to compete.

She's been involved with the Humane Society of the United States, the ASPCA, and Animal Aid USA. As she told Town & Country in 2016, "Dan Abrams [Chief Legal Affairs Anchor for ABC News] said something that had a profound effect on me... I asked him if he was an animal lover and he said, 'Well, I can't really say that I'm an animal lover because I don't do anything positive for them.' I've always loved animals and it made me realize that I have to transfer that passion to doing something to help them."

Emma is resolutely private and has pursued a career in the non-profit world. She spent six and a half years at the noted Robin Hood Foundation, a leading poverty-fighting organization in New York City, before founding Murmuration. Not unlike her father's company, which offers data and analytics-driven insights to the financial sector, Murmuration hopes to improve kids' educational outcomes with data and predictive machine learning models. In Town & Country's June/July 2017 cover story, Michael Bloomberg explained that his daughter's organization was "trying to help people get the political establishment to focus on school systems."

I have my first heart! Thank you

Joe coming up live on MSNBC at noon
