We have many grievances to file and all of them are about land both terrestrial and interstellar. Brenton discusses the weird legal loophole of Yellowstone's "Zone of Death," how it was discovered and the general shrug of indifference towards correcting it. Then Emily opens a complaint with the IAU over Pluto's demotion, while also detailing facts about our former ninth planet.
