Farewell to the Planet of Pluto

I think that we ought to observe a minute’s silence.

Update: Friends of Pluto might find this Photoshop contest amusing.

Update 2: A backlash among astronomers against the Pluto decision.

    Also, instead of a moment of silence, I think we should observe Sufjan Stevens’ “For Clyde Tombaugh.”

    Gaines, I would, if only I had a copy of The Avalanche. Perhaps if I am well-behaved I might be given a copy for Christmas. Is it good?

  3. Gaines says:

    I liked it. Since it’s the leftovers from Illinois, it is not as cohesive as album. But they are Sufjan’s leftovers, so there are some really great songs (admittedly, with a few weak spots).

    a minute’s silence
    Is that an earth minute, or a Pluto minute?

  6. Al says:

    That, Byron, is a very good question…
