Now there are officially eight planets. Pluto is not considered one. It is considered a minor planet, however. Isn't 'minor planet' a poor term to use if it is not a planet? If it's not a planet I don't see why the word planet should be associated with it.

You think Pluto cares what we call it?

I say again

Pluto is still a planet!



Don't care what some stupid astronomers say. :)
