Pluto No Longer Planet

I must admit this saddens me, but science has advanced far enough to allow us to make this determination. We must accept this, and carry on. If we do not, it would be same as saying, "The earth is flat."

When we learn that things are not the way we have believed them to be, we must buck-up. I will miss you, Pluto. I will always remember you. Farewell.

Wha-?! The earth isn't flat? Now they tell me! No wonder that darn ball keeps rolling away from me.

A lot of text books are going to have to be changed....and pop culture references in sci-fi movies.

Sad but true. Wonder how much it is going to cost to change the text books. For me Pluto will always be there. Even Mickey Mouse's dog was named after the "former" planet.

Like so much else from my youth, it is wiped away.
