Discord in the Definition of a Planet

If you think the issue of the demotion of Pluto from being a planet is a done deal, think again. It appears that in an upcoming article in the Planetary and Space Science journal, a new criteria is proposed for what a planet is and possibly restore Pluto as one.

Frankly, I am just amazed that professional scientists spend THIS much time and effort with something THIS superficial. I mean, how does it change the physics of the situation? NADA? Then get over it and tackle something that will actually make a difference already!

Oy vey!
