	I am now accepting rhetorical nominations for a useful
programming language better suited for teaching a beginning programmer
of at least average intelligence.  At the moment the only other
candidate is Pascal, <sarcasm>beloved on account of its vast code
	I do agree that if one intends to do substantial programming in
the current environment ... learning an object-oriented language is a
really good idea.
