Poor Word Choice, Peter

The New York Daily News, writing about another suicide at New York University, characterizes the incident thusly:

A 19-year-old New York University student plunged from a friend’s sixth-floor window in Manhattan last night in an apparent suicide, cops said.

The incident marked the third reported suicide by an NYU student this fall.

Ouch. Might I recommend you share my pretentious reference to this season as autumn to avert these situations?
