The International Astronomical Union's (IAU) General Assembly is voting on whether Pluto should be classified as a planet.

As far as I'm concerned Pluto IS a planet. Why am I so sure? I rely on the infinite wisdom of 2 Skinnee J's, who sang in Pluto, "Pluto. It's a planet!" Case closed.

The J's finale concert in 2003 was recorded for a 3 CD set.

Update: Plutonians must regard this as the saddest day since the Eddie Murphy movie "Nash Pluto" was named after their trans-neptunian body: Pluto loses status as a planet: "Astronomers meeting in the Czech capital have voted to strip Pluto of its status as a planet."

And, at ALOTT5MA, Pluto's concession speech. It's Plutomentum!
