Plutocracy vs. Plutoectomy: On a lighter but still law-worthy note, if you don’t read Blawg Review each week, you are missing something special. (Keep in mind that I grew up with great parents who somehow made us think that work, e.g. doing the dishes or washing the car or even homework, was fun, which explains a lot about me. Yeah, yeah, I’ve since read Tom Sawyer 🙂
Last week Blawg Review featured Ernie the Attorney, whose link to this article on Pluto and Constitutional Law by Mark Graber made me laugh because this past weekend every time I put on the radio someone was talking about Plutocracies, which can be very confusing if you’re half asleep and spent the better part of your holiday weekend awake (drinking and eating)-hours talking about Poor Pluto’s demotion. Pluto’s demotion was not unlike Poor George Washington’s demotion when he was bumped in favor of another president when someone decided to rename an airport, which to me will always be [George!] Washington National Airport no matter what anyone else says. And Pluto will always be a planet to me – but I’m not planning to lose any sleep over it so it will only be in my dreams.
