"Futurestyle 79 offers a funny, off-the-cuff look at San Francisco's heyday."

"A good cast helps make this an enjoyable evening of improv."

"When improv works, it can generate a kind of giddy joy for both actors and audience... On the night I attended, the story totally worked."

When Elliptical Orbits Collide

by Jeb Wilkerson

Today's column is regarding the fact that the National Association of Space and Aeronautics has just released to the public that Neptune and Pluto are now switched.

N.A.S.A, as most Americans refer to them, has stated many years ago that they found a new planet. This is nothing new. This is something that your average high schooler knows. What they neglected to mention is that Pluto and Neptune have the ability to switch positions in the interstellar sky.

This, for me, brings a bunch of things into question. If a national government agency can go back on information or slowly tell us all the facts of a situation than what solid ground do we have to stand on? What if someday we learn that Pluto is not a planet at all? What if the moon is made of cheese and what if up is really down in China?

For me, there are too many questions left unanswered. Perhaps we need to have some sort of citizen regulation. I, for one, would offer up my expertise in the field in a heartbeat.

But, until they come knocking on my door I will have to leave you with this, San Francisco: Neptune is now the outermost planet and Pluto, the planet, is not the last planet in our solar system.

At least until NASA changes its mind again.
