Re: (IAAC) Off Topic: My Pluto Campaign, BIG News.

Dear Astronomer Ted,

It's cool that you're invited to headquarters, but be careful. 

They may simply regard you as a public relations problem that they wish
would go away, and try to dazzle you with The Grand Tour. Resist the
flattery, and use the opportunity to INSIST on the Pluto Mission. Let
them understand that there will be MORE publicity of this kind, not
less, if the mission is not put back on the front burner. They may
underestimate you, because you are "just a high school kid." Don't let
them get away with it. 

Stick to your guns, so that after your visit is over, the Pluto Mission
will be MORE likely to happen because you were there.

Good luck, and keep up the good fight,
