Opinions on the solar system -- and other topics

REGION

"My Very Energetic Mother Can Jump Straight Up North Past Chilly Xena" -- that's the mnenomic device that Jennifer Murphy of Hudson proposes for the new lineup in the solar system.

Murphy says in a Letter to the Editor today that she doubts it will last for long, though, with the astronomical union mulling over additional planets.

In other letters, Mary Connaughton, a member of the Commission on Judicial Conduct from Framingham, comments on a recent Globe editorial.

And Eric Olson of Newton, an instructor at Brandeis, talks about renewable energy credits.
