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.
Keeping medicines from the bloodstreams of the sick; food from the bellies
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.
