Just a super-brief post so y'all know I'm alive. It seems the hullaballoo may be true: the IAU is planning to announce an official definition of "planet" this August. I kinda wish they'd have a period of public commentary, rather than just handing down a decision from on high - it'd raise interest in astronomy, if nothing else - but I doubt that'll happen. I may update this post with more info about what I feel the definition of planet should be and what others kinda use; if so, it'll replace this post.
