I just finished The Pluto Files. It is a light-hearted and serious account of how astrophysicist Tyson of the Hayden Planetarium single-handedly demoted Pluto's status as a planet.
Here is an excerpt from the book, which quotes a humorous 2/16/01 NYT op-ed piece by Eric Metaxas on the mistreatment of Pluto with the following mock headlines:
"TROPICS OF CAPRICORN AND CANCER TO BE ABOLISHED
TOMATO UNEQUIVOCALLY DECLARED A VEGETABLE
GREAT LAKES TO BECOME FIRST FRESHWATER OCEAN
BEIGE TAUPE AND MAUVE LOSE COLOR STATUS
60S STARTED IN 1963
TEXAS DECLARES ITSELF A SUBCONTINENT
EUROPEAN MAPS TO DROP LICHTENSTEIN
METER AND YARD SHAKE HANDS
ASTERISK REMOVED FROM GERALD FORD'S PRESIDENCY
TAB AND ZIMA LOSE BEVERAGE STATUS"
