Imagine my position for the last 5 years. With my (conservative enough)
imagination bursting with the possibilities a tool like Python might play in
the rehabilitation, revitalization and revolutionization of math and science
education.  On what I think are good grounds.  

What an enormous, audacious claim to be making.

And I end up feeling isolated in the Python community because I am not
properly recognizing its potential for rehabilitating, revitalizing, and
revolutionizing everything else there is. I am selling it short.
