  1. My kids must have heard this news somewhere because for a few days all they could talk about was Pluto. "Where's Pluto?" "Is Pluto not a planet?" "Why isn't it a planet anymore?" "Well, why did they used to think it WAS a planet?" The answer to all of these questions is, "I don't know," by the way.
