by Brenda W. Clough

plutoListen — you hear that thumping sound? It is the sound of the hearts of science fiction writers around the world, as they beat a little faster. We are going to see Pluto!

This morning as I left for work there was a Scott lawn care truck parked across the street, as there often is. All the windows were ground down and it was blasting out radio. Usually this is salsa or rap. But as I backed out of my driveway I heard it. It was live radio feed of the Pluto approach. All the lawn care guys are keeping up with their astronomy!
