Is it only me that finds this post "offensive".  This is a mailing
list about using Python in education.  The original poster asked for
resources to teach Python to teachers.  (Granted, I provided one
reference [out of 3] to GvR which is not *quite* Python ... but is
considered by many to be very close).
