I just want to point out to the readership that many copies of _Text
Processing in Python_ are available at your local bookstore for public
burning.  There's heresy in that book!  (apparently I trend a bit to far
in an FP direction :-)).

I think I can speak for Alex in pointing out that _Python in a Nutshell_
also makes for excellent kindling.

Yours, David...

of the hungry; books from the hands of the uneducated; technology from the
underdeveloped; and putting advocates of freedom in prisons.  Intellectual
property is to the 21st century what the slave trade was to the 16th.
