In addition to what Kenny said, consider what happens six weeks
or six months or six years from now when you have to go in and
make a fix or add a feature to a sizable script you wrote today.
Lisp [and I include both Common Lisp & Scheme here] is *so* much
more readable/maintainable "later", in my personal experience.
