The same could be said of *any* category of articles. Why write about
presidents, or hurricanes, or rock stars, or fortune 500 companies,
when there is so much else to do? I'd personally rather read about
coffee shops and indie artists than fortune 500 companies and rock
I'm going to take a wild guess and say that [[Zoe's Cafe, Pullman,

And I bet you [[Pokémon Crystal]] is interesting to more people than
[[Huelva (province)]]. Going with whatever is the most popular is not
something I think Wikipedia should do.

isn't one of them.
