What a wonderful world we live in when a large group of people can gather from all over the world to discuss what we should call a snowball some 2 billion 800 million miles from Earth, and then have a lot more people spend time and money protesting this change in nomenclature.
It seems the more affluent we become, the more likely we are to spend time and effort on things that just don't really matter; like Pluto and the Kyoto Protocol.
