I still maintain that Pluto was promoted, not demoted. It went from the last and least member of the planet category to the first and foremost member of a whole new category of object, the harbinger of a whole new era of discovery
You mean that for Pluto it's better to reign in Hell, than serve in Heaven?
Kidding aside, I agree completely. Now the whole "a dwarf planet is not a planet" is awkward, but oh well.
