      Hi Everybody. When I got home this evening the top AOL news story was
      that STEREO took the first images from the other side of the sun ever.
      The NASA mission specialist said that this was the first time we ever
      gotten images from the dark side of the sun. I found that highly
      amusing and ironic and was wondering if this person might have been one
      of those who demoted Pluto from planet status. Probably not but no
      wonder the public gets mixed signals from astronomical community. It's
      full of old nomenclature that is wrong but is still in use, planetary
      nebulae just to name one. Planetary nebulae have nothing to do with
      planets. Let's correct all the books not yet published and those to be
      printed hereafter because of this glaring error. If there is a dark
      side of the sun surely there is room for Pluto to take its rightful
      place among the planets once again! That's my opinion and I'm stickin'
      to it. Jim
