And Then There Were Eight

For the first time since 1930, Pluto is no longer a planet. That’s right, it’s busted, demoted, stripped of its status and sent to a corner of the solar system to sit wearing a dunce cap until it learns how to behave. After much debate at the International Astronomical Union meeting in Prague, a vote was taken and since Pluto’s oblong orbit overlaps with Neptune’s, it was thrown out of the solar system. From now on, Pluto is a cartoon dog, the god of the underworld, an airline in the United Arab Emirates, and a big chunk of rock orbiting our sun. But it’s not a planet, dammit. Now we return to our regularly scheduled quest for world peace, still in progress.
