  1. One of my first exposures to NdGT was watching a cable show about Pluto being demoted. He was telling the story of a kid who sent him a letter asking Pluto get reinstated in his museum’s display, and he was laughing at the kid’s crayoned letter. (Aren’t kids supposed to Change the Worlds?) Anyway, someone who makes fun of a little kid is like a school in the summer: no class.

    It’s funny how many astronomers want to be the next Carl Sagan, and none have really managed it. For all his political faults, he was truly a great communicator. Most scientists vying for the mantle tend to come off as buffoons or desperate wannabes.
