Planet Pluto Wine
Goes To Bat For Our Plucky Hero

PPW

From the PlanetPlutoWine.com website:

What’s in a name?  The rejection of planetary status for Pluto by the International Working Group for Planetary Systems Nomenclature stands as a chilling example of our 20th Century twisted thought process.  “Planet” is a very old term which means “wanderer,” thus any heavenly body which failed to conform to Aristotle’s theory which required precise orbit around the Earth every 24 hours.  Like all other bodies in the solar system, Pluto qualifies as a planet, despite what contemporary revisionist scientists may say.  It’s our language, not theirs!

It is particularly ironic that the original meaning of the word "Planet" from the Greek... meaning 'wanderer', was a celestial body which did not behave conforming to theory.  The planets were the objects which wandered from the normal 24-hour rotation observed for most objects in the heavens.  Pluto's nonconformity with current planetary theory is all the more reason for it to merit the designation.

Here's winemaker Clark Smith
talking about his Planet Pluto Wine:

Audience at Harvard Forum:
Pluto is a Planet!

Pluto is a Planet
When reasonable and unbiased people ignore the hyperbole and actually examine the science - they overwhelmingly come to the same conclusion - Pluto is a Planet.

This happened once again on September 18th at an open forum addressing the still unresolved question of “what is a planet” held at the Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics. After hearing all the evidence, the attendees voted overwhelmingly in favor of planet status for Pluto.
