Andreas: Pluto is gone.

It's still in contrarian orbit. Personally I approve of the ouster, but not for astronomical reasons. By naming an pseudo-planet after Pluto, stargazers privileged the downside. They could have named the wanderer after Pluto's brother, Zeus. Surely Zeus deserved a planet so capricious.

Still I can imagine the slogans:

"Bush's must be blamed; Pluto was renamed."

"No blood for astral objects."
