Driving home the other day, listening to Aesop Rock’s lament of the IAU’s August 2006 decision to demote Pluto, (a fun and geeky song titled, fittingly, “Bring Back Pluto”) I wondered:
Are we over Pluto? Nobody talks about it anymore. Despite the cultural nostalgia associated with it, I pretty much understood and agreed with the decision from the beginning, but are there some of you out there secretly holding out hope that they will bring it back? Now’s your chance to exorcise your demons, kids.
