who is writting this stuff? cause your real tough

The community fact is true. Stop vandalizing this page.

I don't care if it's true. It's not important or interesting. AJD 22:38, 15 April 2007 (UTC)
I'm glad there is someone who is here to decide what people are going to find interesting. Referrence to Amos Potamia in a 130 year old book [1]. Nike Ajax silos are in the top ten hits on google. The DEA agent whos civil rights were supposedly violated by the Reading police department was very well spread at the time and is quite notable [2].--24.128.232.120 09:13, 27 May 2007 (UTC)

History vs Government[edit]

There is much material duplicated in those two sections. Someone with nothing better to do might want to re-organize them. Also, the entire History section was apparently lifted intact from an online history of Reading, and requires not only copyediting, but a bit of pruning to make it more interesting (vide infra! :) and appropriate to Wikipedia. There are other sources that contain various aspects of Reading's history, and thus ample opportunities for research and reporting by historians amateur and professional alike.

Thanks to Chris J. Wood (who apparently had nothing better to do) the whole article has been tightened up and improved. Good work, Chris! Snezzy 05:33, 14 November 2007 (UTC)

Geography[edit]

I forget exactly where, but it says no land in Reading is covered by water. I know for a fact that this is not entirely true. There are many vernal pools, and a few places that are covered by water year round. A suggestion to change this to 'No significant amount of land is covered by water', will put that up for now, and someone can rephrase it laterHewhoamareismyself (talk) 20:32, 8 May 2011 (UTC)
