Astronomers really acting like government employees lately

First they started playing games with what a "planet" is. Now they are so married to the ancient gods naming convention they won't allow the team that discovered the new planet (pluton, dwarf planet, whatever) name it. I much prefer Xena with a moon called Gabrielle than something called Eris with a moon (or disease) called Dysnomia.
