Programming Languages

Philip Greenspun on programming languages...

SQL, Lisp, and Haskell are the only programming languages that I've seen where one spends more time thinking than typing.
There are some others to add to the list: Smalltalk, Python, Ruby, SML, etc. But the point is taken.

SML, yes.

The others... not so much.
