Making yet another functional language, re-inventing LISP, is like making square wheels because thirteen-sided ones bother you.

Arc is cool. Yay! It's LISP. It's got S-expressions.

The language I was denigrating is S, a functional-but-not-S-expression language. I mean, what the hell? It's like LISP, except that code isn't data. No reflexive structure! Why bother!?

I mean, it was like ML, only without ML's libraries. It's like a stripped down LISP, with the most important parts stripped off!
