This statement on Paul Graham's web site is what got me using Python:

<excerpt from the Lisp FAQ at:>
I like Lisp but my company won't let me use it. What should I do?

Try to get them to let you use Python. Often when your employer won't
let you use Lisp it's because (whatever the official reason) the guy
in charge of your department is afraid of the way Lisp source code
looks. Python looks like an ordinary dumb language, but semantically
it has a lot in common with Lisp, and has been getting closer to Lisp
over time.
