:Tom, you might have done reasonably well the rest of your Python
:homework, but that is a very dumb statement. Tcl is typeless. Python is
:rather strongly typed and proud with that. 

I'm just reporting what I've read.  I wasn't aware that Mark Lutz was
considered a spreader of fictions.  I'd swear his book used that phrase
a lot.  I agree that dynamically typed is more sensible a term.

Perle, plesaunte to prynces paye/ To clanly clos in golde so clere,
Oute of oryent, I hardyly saye/ Ne proued I neuer her precios pere.
