Priorities revealed

I got in late last night from the east coast. All day yesterday in the airports I watched the news of the world financial markets falling apart. A 400 point drop in the Dow? All but three companies of the S&P 500 went down? Pretty big news.

Not big enough, however, to knock the sustainability agenda off as the top story in the Oregonian's business section!

Right there above the fold, across the whole page is the humongous news that "Local homes database turns green." Yessir, the news that the RLS database has added a feature that identifies "green" homes is far more important than some little chest cold in the world's financial markets.

What's a 3.5% drop in the Dow and an 8% plunge in China compared to this earth shattering story?
