Who are they calling a midget?

Geez, didn't I read last week they were going to add a couple of planets to the solar system? So what's the deal with kicking poor little Pluto out of it? So its orbit is little off kilter. Hell, so is mine. Are they going to kick me out of the human race? I'm guessing these scientists were arguing about how to classify the planets they wanted to add and in the end decided to can Pluto under their new definitions.

I've always loved that planet. Besides being named after Mickey Mouse's dog, that little plucky piece of rock hanging on at the verge of the galaxy was pretty big news when they first found it. Now they have all these fancy spaceships and telescopes so it doesn't rate anymore? Progress can be such a drag sometimes.
