I was not considering that.   I wanted only *one* of the presentations  
to be roughly comparing Ruby. And want it to be done by someone who  
can be very professional. It is not like I flame war would not be fun,  
it is just not what I want this time. We could dedicate some other  
month meeting to a real slap down.... later.

We have a pretty strong following right not by those using Python for  
some things where they will never have the opportunity nor desire to  
look at other languages. We need to have the other two or so ChiPy  
Presentation cover those interests. The other topics would probably be  
very different. Not really that language specific, but more focused on  
a particular Python project.

Sean, are you offering to present? Are you an un-biased authority on  
both languages? Someone who can show the good sides of both without  
getting carried away? This is what I am looking for. Anyone else?
