Dear Shawn,

Time to start sowing internal discord... *grin*  I don't recommend the
official tutorial at:


At least, not until you're more familiar with programming.  It's ok to
take a brief glance at it, but it's the "deep end of the pool".

On the other hand, I think you're better off with the Introductions
section of python.org here:


You can get a lot out of the "Introductions to Python programming for
non-programmers" section on that page.

Good luck!
