Requiem for Pluto

Very tired today (on my feet -- literally -- for over seven hours) so just a real short post. Kinda bummed, too: read in the paper this morning that Pluto is no longer a planet.*

I know, it has nothing to do with poverty in the Triad. But for a space buff from way back, it kinda hurts, y'know. I followed the debate on whether or not to demote the little guy; I was pulling for him.

*By the by, that's not me being quoted in the article, although seeing the moon, Saturn and Jupiter through a telescope still gives me goosebumps. Best show in the universe, and it's free.
