I had heard there had been some cameras following the Quiet Orinda folks around, so I asked the group’s founder, Peter Kendall, about it when I spoke with him earlier this week for my story about the group’s re-emergence. Kendall declined to fill me in on what was going on, only saying something big was happening and he couldn’t tell me what it was until he was sure it was going to happen.
Well apparently he’s sure. Quiet Orinda sent an email this evening saying they will be featured on CBS’ Sunday Morning with Charles Osgood this Sunday. The show airs from 6 to 7:30 a.m. If you’re counting, this is the second time the anti-leaf blower group has made national news — it was the subject of a feature in The New Yorker magazine last year. And then of course there was my groundbreaking interview on Australian radio on the subject last year.
