In 3.2.2 in IDLE I have this dictionary entry:

Namath = {"first_name": "Joe", "last_name": "Namath", "phone": "212-222-7777",\
          "email": "joe.namath at gmail.com", "stadium": "Shea Stadium"}

when I print it:


I get:

{'phone': '212-222-7777', 'first_name': 'Joe', 'last_name': 'Namath',
'email': 'joe.namath at gmail.com', 'stadium': 'Shea Stadium'}

Why is it out of order?
