Charles, you’re a funny guy :) I wasn’t going to say anything, but I can’t
help myself, I must protest this great injustice to Pluto.
You know, there is just something about Pluto, I love that little guy!
And, I don’t care what the scientists say Pluto is, it will always be a
planet to me. Besides, there are scientists that still call Pluto a
planet, so it is ok.
Yes, what an embarrassment for the scientists this year lol, when it
became known to the general mass of people, that they didn’t really have a
clear idea what a planet was!! Interestingly, that didn’t stop them from
naming planet after planet, till we were told we had 8 other planets
around us. 
I am not sure, but I think in 2009, they will meet again, our brilliant
minds, and then, most likely, we will have a new definition of a planet,
and maybe, just maybe, Pluto will be a planet again ha ha. Actually, there
is practically no doubt they will produce a new definition.
Anyway, on the up side, there is a spaceship on it’s way to the outer
reaches, to visit Pluto and beyond, called ‘New Horizons’.

This could be the fastest spacecraft ever, it reaches Jupiter in early 2007, 
it left Earth Jan 19, 2006!
