Pluto is not a "planet"

Wow. There's a big suprise. :)
I was never very fond of Pluto as a planet, but it was so named and therefore it was considered one...
However, I think the best quote out of this whole thing is...

Demoting the icy orb named for the Roman god of the underworld isn't personal — it's just business — said Jack Horkheimer, director of the Miami Space Transit Planetarium and host of the PBS show "Star Gazer."

"It's like an amicable divorce," he said. "The legal status has changed but the person really hasn't. It's just single again." (from http://www.ajc.com/hp/content/shared-gen/ap/Science/Planet_Mutiny.html )

Pluto is single. I am amused. :)
