Pluto, Demoted?

I hope you sent in your vote. If not, Pluto’s fate as a “planet” will not be in your hands. Sometime in the next year or two, some official determination (not this one) will make a final assessment on Pluto’s status, especially since an object larger has been discovered beyond Neptune. The thinking is that more big round bodies are out there. If the count of objects larger than Pluto reaches ten or twenty –and it might — there’s no way Pluto retains its status.

I think it should be demoted.
