Breaking news ...

( ... that needs to be analyzed before my next original post!)

Pluto gets demoted from planetary to "dwarf" status.

My take on this?

I blame Disney.

This smacks of a conspiracy, designed to protect their profitable trademarks through covert, unethical influence of the scientific community ... perhaps via a potential mole, one Ludwig von Drake?

The NYT needs to get on this, and expose the money trails leading back from Ludwig, through wealthy financier Ebeneezer Scrooge, to this Mickey Mouse outfit.

I mean, what's next ... the entertainment world? Are Huey Lewis, Donald "Duck" Dunn, and the Chippendales now going to be compelled to change their names, too? For that matter, what about Ric Ocasik and his band ... the Cars?

Literature? Will 20,000 Leagues under the Sea be pulled from the shelves, lest kids deprive Disney of profit by finding another Nemo?

Is the food industry even safe from this assualt upon personal liberty? Will Peter Pan peanut butter have to become Peanut Pete, to escape the Disney lawyers?

For that matter, will even the renaming of this planet as a "dwarf" be challenged by Disney, as they have significant financial incentives to limit the number of publically-classified dwarves?


Maybe ... but you have to agree, my theory is no more Goofy than the theories of others that the NYT makes common cause with.
