For those who don't have access to William's local file system, I expect
he's looking at this:

or the most recent version:

http://docs.python.org/dev/howto/functional.html

What about the entire "Introduction" section, which starts with this
statement?

"This section explains the basic concept of functional programming"

If you would like to suggest improvements, please do so.
