    The Battle for Bottled Water

    The city said Friday that tap water in Breezy Point, Queens, was not drinkable and that all residents should drink bottled water until further notice. Boiling it does not make it safe, officials said.

    Now that some New Yorkers are living without potable water, perhaps Michael Bloomberg should reconsider his assertion that Sunday’s marathon “doesn’t use resources that can really make a difference in recovery.” Long-distance runners and their supporters tend to enjoy guzzling clean water, Mike!
