Pluto Was Robbed

Pluto and its moon Charon
So I hear a bunch of scientists at the International Astronomical Union voted to kick Pluto out of the list of planets. See, that's the first problem. Voting. So what if people voted? Maybe Pluto WANTED to stay a planet. Doesn't anyone care what Pluto wants in all of this? The New Horizons spacecraft will flyby Pluto in 2015. Perhaps we should wait until then to make this decision so we know how the little planet really feels. That's what really matters, not a bunch of elitist voters.

I really empathize with Pluto. We have a lot in common.

Fortunately, Pluto has decided that it will continue to campaign as an "indepedent planet." As an "independent planet," Pluto promises to support the current Solar System Leader (the Sun) and expects it will keep its committee assignment (head of the "Furthest Orbit Committee").

Far oouuudt Joe, your focus on this overlooked issue points out once again, that important decisions should be in the hands of "We The People". The gravity of this situation far outweighs global warming, and any disharmony in the music of the spheres could lead to an unbalanced universe...
