Which goes to confirm what I said. You just stated your "taste",
not "truth" :-)

I guess Pascal has a different taste from yours (but at least
as strong as yours).

That's why there are Lisp-2's and Lisp-1's (actually that's even
more complicated, because if you squint the right way, you'll
discover even more namespaces lurking around :-)

As I see equally smart people on both camps (and who are equally
loads smarter than me), I gave up seeking the truth in it. Granted,
I feel some tendency towards Lisp-1's, but I can cope pretty well
with -2's. After digesting the difference, I even have some warm
and fuzzy feelings about them.

Perhaps Scheme's for you :-)
