Slow news day, huh? HansTaub (talk) 09:33, 17 September 2009 (UTC)

Nope. See User:Juliancolton/Fall foliage project. –Juliancolton | Talk 11:18, 17 September 2009 (UTC)

Is this news? really? Is there not something more important going on in the world right now?

Wait, let me go look outside... The trees here in Quebec, Canada (at least in my part of Quebec) are still green, in case anyone is interested.

Nicely written though :)

what about the environmental costs of driving a car to see foliage ? Has anyone added up how many millions of gallons of gas, tons of greenhouse gas, etc, are due to "leaf peepers "?Cinnamon colbert (talk) 13:30, 17 September 2009 (UTC)

Wikinews's goal is to "To present up-to-date, relevant, newsworthy and entertaining content without bias". I think this clearly falls within the "entertaining" category. –Juliancolton | Talk 13:15, 17 September 2009 (UTC)
When my feed reader picks it up 4 times, that's not entertaining, that's annoying. Thinking it might just be a bug in the reader, I followed the link to the 'Current Feed Content' for Wikinews and it's listed there twice.

Unlike you guys I like to read something positive for once.--KDP3 (talk) 14:24, 17 September 2009 (UTC)
