The Demise of Pluto

These astronomers can't keep doing this to us. A few years back, it was touch and go there for a while with Pluto, but it pulled through. And for what? Only to be bumped back to lower-class status again?

If I'm understanding this correctly, Pluto is no longer a planet because it's small, and other small planets have been discovered, and we like our solar system the way it is and don't want new money coming in and buying tons of shirts and really nice houses and stealing our Daisy Buchanans. So we have to kick out Pluto too, because if you allow one runt, you have to let in them all.

It's sizist, I tell you. What, because a planet is small it can't be a planet? Because it's made of gas? Um, so's Giant Jupiter. I think the ACLU should step up.
