Umm... basically claiming that Pluto is no longer a planet is not only Unconstitutional but is also a violation of Planetary Rights. Did Pluto have any say in this ruling? Poor Pluto. As if it wasn't bad enough that Pluto was all alone, small little Pluto, the odd duck out, all alone in his own orbit in the outer fringes of the solar system, he then has his very identity, the very foundation of who he is stripped away from him! Naked and alone now Pluto remains. This is a planetary conspiracy of the most horrendous kind. The 9/11 conspiracy doesn't even come close to this. This isn't just on a global scale, this is on a Solar System scale! Why isn't anyone marching on Washington to protest the violation of rights on Pluto!? This is unacceptable! Ten bucks ten years from now Pluto gets his rightful status back. But it won't happen without the unified voices of an outraged public! Pluto for President!
There is one state that isn't standing for this! New Mexico:
"Wired and others are reporting that for New Mexico, the fight for Pluto is not over. Seven months after the International Astronomical Union downgraded the distant heavenly body to a 'dwarf planet,' a state representative in New Mexico aims to give the snubbed world back some of its respect. State lawmakers will vote Tuesday on a bill that proposes that 'as Pluto passes overhead through New Mexico's excellent night skies, it be declared a planet.' The lawmaker who introduced the measure represents the county in which Clyde Tombaugh, Pluto's discoverer, was born. For many of us old timers, and those who had the honor of meeting Clyde, this just causes a belly laugh and is pure fun. Not to mention a bit of poking a stick in the eye." http://science.slashdot.org/article.pl?sid=07/03/11/1743233
