Notes from Planet X: pt. 7

"The fellow reflects on the planetarium community's resistance to our museum's treatment of Pluto on the grounds that it was against IAU proclamation; but after the IAU officially demoted Pluto, the same community continued to object, this time ignoring the IAU. Behavior such as this betrays hidden biases that do not tend to be subject to rational argument."
-- Neil deGrasse Tyson, "The Pluto Files," pg 120.
