The worst thing you could would be to try to write VB in Python. While 
Python may not  - for someone coming from more mainstream languages - 
look as weird as Lisp or Haskell or etc..., it's really a totally 
different beast. Lurking here, trying to answer other's persons 
questions, and reading other peoples solution might be a good way to 
learn idiomatic Python.
