Apparently it is no longer a planet.
"Pluto has been considered a planet since its discovery in 1930 by the American Clyde Tombaugh."
Sounds very 'un-American'. Do you think Bush will step up and announce that it's STILL a planet as far as the USA is concerned? Like when he re-wrote history to make all the US's Johnny-come-latelys into the actual 'inventers' of all the world's cool stuff?
is my favourite plant. this makes me sad :(
I think that's going a bit too far don't you? Don't NASA look after the planets?
Surely that's wasteful.
I think America is pretty cool overall. I mean you can get some great food and the records are pretty cheap I guess.
is taking a trip down south, getting with the Klan and going to lynch some coloured chappies?
Disgraceful. It's like singling out a crippled child because it can't run as fast as the other children. IT'S STILL A CHILD! IT HAS RIGHTS.
who were just cruising around, taking in sites. I travelled around for a few months and met nothing but cool people. I think they were American. They could have been Canadian. I never asked them really.

I need a career as Im sort of meandering at the moment in between something in the music biz and becoming a travelling blog-poet.
My thoughts in poetry from around the world, but only available through myspace and faceparty! I guess if it happens then I'll do it next year - there is still time for something to crop up in the music industry I'm sure!
I bought a timeshare on Pluto for my retirement from Planets For Sale. Prime location. I shall have to read the small print to see how much I've lost.
This makes me sad. Oh well.
I'm sure, given its name [god of the underworld etc] there's a highly sentimental remark to be had there about the pathetic humour in it being chucked out of the heavens.
But I'll not be the one to make it.
