that's just the old "C++/Java is better than Smalltalk/Python/Ruby" 
crap.  we've seen it before, and it's no more true when it comes from 
you than when it comes from some Java head.  people who've actually used 
dynamic typing knows that it doesn't mean that all objects have random 
types all the time.

no wonder, if you kept running around telling your colleagues that they 
were liars and crackpots and slanderers when things didn't work as you 
expected.  what's your current line of work, btw?
