Yes.  Yes.  Yes.  Maybe.

Python is certainly my favorite language (currently), but I've used
enough languages over the years that I'm not going to make wildly
exaggerated claims for Python.  What I will claim is that all but
poorly-written Python code is much more readable than any other language
I've tried.
