I don't know if this qualifies, but at my sparse website I have
written up some snippets of Python to contrast with Perl.  This is
mostly an outlet for frustrations encountered at work where Perl is
king and Python is criticized by people who have never bothered to
look at it (and hence Python is not available on our development
boxes).  It may be off base, but may be somewhat useful.  I tried to
not make it too vitriolic!
