Why did no one invent Python before?

Python's been around for more than a decade at this point.  ABC came
before that, and was broadly similar to Python in its syntax.  Earlier
still, Apple's Hypertalk was a "natural looking, easy to read,
incredibly powerful language" for hypercard.  We're now all the way back to 
the mid or late 80s (the Internet didn't immediately answer that
question for me).

Myself, I've been using Python for something like 9 years, and loving
every moment of it.
