To add to anecdotes, Python is always represented and well-displayed at
Barnes & Noble in downtown Seattle.  B&N is a rather mainstream bookstore,
with reasonably well stocked but mainstream tech books.  I haven't bothered
to look at how many Python books are actually on the shelf, I just notice
that there's always 1 or 2 in the "look at this" display.

Brandon's Law (after Godwin's Law):
"As a Usenet discussion grows longer, the probability of
a person being called a troll approaches one RAPIDLY."
