Poor, poor pluto... Personally, I was on the favoring side for keeping Pluto a planet. After all, it's the cute planet.
Also, I agree, it's a shame that more astronomers didn't vote. (Why didn't they anyway?) The new definition does seem ambigious too.

Looks like the kids need a new sentence to help them memorize the planet order. Can anyone come up with a good one?

Easy.

Can't seem to think of a really good (something involving anal) one.

It is kind of sad, but it really needed to be done. As we explore further into the outer reaches of our solar system, we're bound to find many larger Kuiper Belt Objects. Without a concise definition of "planet", we'd end up with a bunch of planets that aren't really.

Because that would require hard work and intelligence. That ain't what we stands for here in America.

You can always turn tricks for a few extra bucks. If looks are an issue, there's the glory hole option, but don't expect more than ... tips.

So that way they can run around their house screaming about Mary's Vagina, and when their parents ask them what they are doing, they will say "I'm learning about the cosmos!"
