Leading astronomers declared Thursday that Pluto is no longer a planet under historic new guidelines that downsize the solar system from nine planets to eight.
I was listening to the Dan Patrick Show today and the baseball analogy is appropriate. This is like getting sent back to the minors, or awaiting reassignment, or an outright release. Who would have thought Pluto was having such a bad year. It is like losing a favorite player -- an everyday player who get the job done without ever complaining.
