Post script on the Pluto debate
A while back I posted on the debate of whether Pluto is a planet or not. The International Astronomical Union voted last year that Pluto is not a planet, but officially a "dwarf planet", therefore a different category. It seems that the state of New Mexico can not handle this scientific decision, so they have declared through legislation that Pluto IS a planet. I find it quite amusing that a state government think they are in a position to make scientific decisions. This is just pure ignorance. Idgets.
