Comment Pluto's Discoverer was BORN IN ILLIONOIS ! (Score 2, Informative) 512

Clyde Tombaugh was born in Streator, Illinois in 1906. Kudos for Illinois for speaking up and honoring their own Clyde would be furious to know that after he was dead his planet was declared a non-planet. I met Clyde and even when was alive he was vehemently defending Pluto as a planet. Some wussy astronomers waited until he was dead to change the classification - nice going guys.
