Eight is Enough

Marks Very Enthusiastic Mother Just Sent Us Nothing.

Recently a 10th body larger than Pluto was descovered in the outer Solar Sysem. It's in an orbit that takes it from outside Pluto to inside Neptune. This reminded me of the arguments over whether Pluto is a planet. There's no strict definition of what a planet is, but...
I think a planet should have a regular orbit concentric with the other planets because bodys that cut across the orbit of other planets are begging for a collision. The kind of collision that creates planets.
