Pluto no longer a planet?

Ok, this whole Pluto thing is just silly.

All of my life (longer really), Pluto has been a planet. That is what is taught in school. We have 9 planets.

Well, now, because of some stuffed shirted, want to make everything difficult scientist at the International Astronomical Union has said so, Pluto is no longer a planet.

It will now be called a "dwarf planet"

You know what? I don't care except for the havoc this will make on the education system alone.

So now, if you care, our solar system has 8 planets, and 3 dwarf planets.

Does anyone else have a head-ache?
