I was pleasantly surprised to open my mailbox just now, pull out the 
Gavilan College[1] catalog for summer/fall, and see ON THE COVER "New! 
Python Programming, page 70".

This is notable because for years the computer courses at Gavilan have 
fallen into Microsoft Office skills, desktop publishing with Adobe 
products, and programming using Java, Javascript, and VB. Oh, and web 
programming using Microsoft stuff.

Here's the entry:
