No one has ever written a quick hack in Python or C! Or VBScript running with WSH!

There are so many things I disagree with in this article, but also, I think it needs to try and make a single argument, or at least maintain a theme, rather than a collection of unrelated thoughts with a sort-of-unrelated title.

It is so much easier for me to write one quick hack in Python than in bash. It has everything to manipulate files and other basic actions and is easily readable.
The bash syntax is, while powerful, really not human-friendly. It looks almost nothing like a traditional programming language.
