Indeed. I confused strongly/weakly with static. I feel a a bit 
embarrased by it. My apologies.

But no. Nothing that follows from that paragraph is wrong, just because 
of that mistake.

It still stands that list was artifically created to make it look like 
type annotations on top of executable code is a feature of nearly every 
language in the book. When it is not!

Most particularly when it comes to statically typed languages, wich 
Steven didn't feel guilty of including there.
