And Then There Were Eight

After 76 years, Pluto has gotten a pink-slip. It seems that the scientific "fact" that there are 9 planets in our solar system has been revised. With Pluto's demption, we're down to 8. Thank goodness we've settled THAT! Or have we?? Pluto will now be a "dwarf planet" raising the question: "If a raincoat is still a coat, and a cell phone is still a phone, why isn't a dwarf planet still a planet?"... Well, at least Pluto is way out there, so we're still the 3rd Rock, or 3rd Stone, from the sun...
