I have to admit I'm not looking forward to breaking this news to Sam. He takes his planets very seriously, and has a solar system poster nearly as big as one wall of his room, a solar system puzzle, and several books about the solar system... and all of them, obviously, list Pluto as one of the planets. Right at the moment I'm having trouble convincing him that January is cold and that fall follows summer, so convincing him that Pluto is no longer considered a planet is going to be painful.



Tell him it blew up.
