Programming with Boat Anchors

Good dynamic languages (e.g. Lisp, Smalltalk, Python) are dirt simple...

Compared to Java code, XML is agile and flexible. Compared to Python code, XML is a boat anchor, a ball and chain...

If you have a thick skin and don't mind being laughed at, try explaining to a Lisp programmer why your application needs XML!
