Letter: Carmel Marathon should have been on Sunday



What idiot came up with the hair-brained idea to block off all of the major intersections in the city of Carmel? The taxpayer’s money that was spent to have the police officers direct traffic to let the runners cross is shameful. Whatever happened to the Monon Trail, was it closed? It runs for miles and yet the people driving the main streets were inconvenienced because some people want to get out and run. To choose a Saturday is just plain stupid, couldn’t it have been planned for early Sunday morning when most people are in bed? This is the most boneheaded plan that has taken place in Carmel for a long time.
