Default Pluto demoted

Officially, our solar system has been reduced to 8 planets with the booting of Pluto.

I think the astronomers are hanging around with Goofy too much.

And I was on vacation last week, and missed a lot of news, but caught the end of a story on SportsCenter. It was about things that have changed between when Junior Seau retired and when he signed with the Patriots. One of the deals was that they went from 9 planets to 12 and back to 9. Anybody see something about 3 new planets last week?
